Higgs Boson halts as CERN closes for two-year break
The work will by no means be confined to the LHC. Major renovation work is scheduled, for example, for the Proton Synchrotron (PS) and the Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS).
At the SPS, about 100 kilometres of radiation-damaged cables used in the instrumentation and control systems will be removed or replaced.
The Higgs Boson or Higgs particle is a theoretical elementary particle predicted almost 50 years ago to exist by the Standard Model of particle physics.
A previously unknown particle was discovered in 2012, however, its properties are still being studied in 2013 to learn whether or not it is the Higgs Boson.
