What would the Higgs boson-like particle sound like?
Researchers have turned data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) into sound, in an effort to "hear" the Higgs boson-like particle announced on 4 July.
Such "sonification" efforts have previously made sounds and musical scores based on data from sources ranging from the Sun to volcanoes.
Now, researchers from the Geant collaboration - the IT network that routes all of the LHC's data - have taken data from the LHC's Atlas detector and turned it into a short piano solo.
The "bump" corresponding to the particle can be heard as the high notes in the second bar of the solo, about 3.5 seconds into the recording.
