Scientists have spotted the first evidence of a rare Higgs boson decay, expanding our understanding of the strange quantum universe. 

In 2012, the Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to a breakthrough finding: the detection of the Higgs boson, a subatomic particle predicted by the Standard Model of physics nearly 50 years prior. The Higgs boson doesn’t live very long, quickly decaying into less massive particles like two photons (light particles).
