Fermi Lab may have found 'new force of nature'

• Terrence Aym
Amazed physicists at the US Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in Illinois have announced the possible discovery of a "new force of nature." The discovery goes beyond the elusive, so-called "God Particle" that's been something of a Holy Grail amongst nuclear particle theorists. That particle, formally called the Higgs-boson, is an elementary, mathematically posited fragment of reality that many researchers believe may account for objects with mass.
