Several popular theories of what lies beyond the Higgs boson face ‘severe’ scrutiny

Scientists have made the most precise measurements ever of the shape of electrons.

According to a news release from Harvard University, Harvard and Yale scientists have made the most precise measurements ever of the shape of electrons and, as a result, have raised “severe” doubts about several popular theories of what lies beyond the Higgs boson.

“We are trying to glimpse in the lab any difference from what is predicted by the Standard Model, like what is being attempted at the LHC,” said¬†John Doyle, Professor of Physics at Harvard, in a statement.
