Physics and Cosmology January 28th ... One goal of the Large Hadron Collider is to find the Higgs boson, the only particle in the standard model that has not yet been discovered. Now, some physicists are suggesting, because it has not as yet been found, the Higgs is not actually a particle but an unparticle called the Unhiggs. At the present, the authors say, it is hard to say whether the idea is useful - or true, or whether it will solve problems troubling particle physicists.
