Higgs in space: Orbiting telescope could beat the LHC

By Anil Ananthaswamy EVIDENCE for the Higgs boson could be pouring down upon us from deep space. If so, an orbiting space telescope could upstage the Large Hadron Collider in the search for the elusive particle. NASA’s FERMI satellite was launched last year to detect gamma rays. One expected source of gamma rays is the mutual annihilation of dark matter particles in our galaxy. While the nature of dark matter – which makes up 90 per cent of the matter in the universe – is unknown, physicists think it is made of weakly interacting massive particles,
