Higgs Boson and End of Universe?
 
This sounds interesting...

But, I don't really trust popular science article to get something like this right. For some reason, a Google search of Joseph Lykken isn't turning up any actual science papers.

Anyone got any ideas for where I else might try to get an accurate idea of what actually happened here?

You have to change your location, this is no use anymore, you must move close to M49... :razz:

Try these links:

The BBC link was where I first read about this idea; it led to the AAAS page.

Speaking of M49, there's a galaxy called that. It's 51700000-57300000 ly away. So if a Higgs-based doomsday occurs in that galaxy, we'll be safe for at most 57885161 years.

I want my anti-grav car, damnit. And I'm getting older too, I want to be young enough to enjoy it.

(Kinda kidding, and kinda not)
