A crucial goal for the Large Hadron Collider is to find the long-sought Higgs boson. It might also create another Higgs particle that only travels through hidden dimensions, meaning it can pop in and out of any point in time.
Since the Higgs boson is the missing subatomic particle of the standard model of physics, the search for it hogs most of the headlines. (For a good breakdown on the Higgs boson, check out Dr. Dave Goldberg's earlier post.) But Vanderbilt theoretical physicists Tom Weiler and Chui Man Ho have imagined another kind of Higgs particle known as the Higgs singlet, and their calculations suggest it might be the weirdest particle we've yet imagined.
