The LHC experiment
the elementary-particle Physics theory exposed in the book
"The Genesis of mass" is aesthetically appealing or not is a
matter of taste. Nonetheless, it might be physically irrelevant if
experiments prove that is it not correct. Even though there might be
already inconclusive evidence for the existence of katoptrons, the first
experiment that will test the theory will be performed in the Large
Hadron Collider at CERN.
This begun its regular operation around Summer 2010. First collisions at
relatively low energies were initially recorded on Nov. 23, 2009.
On Jul. 4, 2012, the discovery of a new boson
with a mass of around 125 GeV was announced at CERN. This constitutes a
clear scientific triumph, since such a boson is in principle needed for
the theoretical completion of the Standard Model of Elementary Particle
Physics. The study of its properties opens a new exciting era of
research. Is it possible that this boson is a composite state of two
katoptrons? Even though we will
try to keep you updated regarding any developments on the experimental
front, we refer you to the LHC site for you to have a first-hand opinion.
