Physicists are announcing the latest results from the proton-colliding experiments at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) and are widely expected to declare that they have evidence for the existence of the Higgs boson1.02pm: Ok the seminar has started, but traffic to the webcast is obviously heavy, breaking up the transmission.1.01pm: Cern's live webcast has begun, but the seminar has yet to start. The expressions on some of the faces in the audience suggests Christmas is about to come early for the physics community.12.58pm: The Higgs field is often said to give mass to everything. That is wrong. The Higgs field only gives mass to some very simple particles. The field accounts for only one or two percent of the mass of more complex things like atoms, molecules and everyday objects, from your mobile phone to your pet llama. The vast majority of mass comes from the energy needed to hold...
