Higgs in Space
What a headline-grabbing title for a paper (http://arxiv.org/abs/0912.0004).
A tantalising idea that NASA’s FERMI telescope could end up seeing signatures of the Higgs, thanks to dark matter annihilations in space. There are, as usual, lots of caveats. Not least being the exotic model of dark matter that’s used in this paper. Still, very intriguing — and could potentially upstage the Large Hadron Collider in its search for the Higgs.
