The Higgs boson can be glimpsed at work in the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, according to scientists working on the project. ATLAS physicists say they've observed particle pairs called W bosons pinging off each other in the detector in a process that might be used to test the Higgs. "We know these particles very well, but we have never seen them interact in this way before. With this measurement, we can check that the Higgs boson does its job," said Brookhaven National Laboratory's Marc-Andre Pleier.
