Chinese link in missing-link breakthrough

The yellow lines are the measured tracks of other particles produced in the collision. The pale blue volume shows the CMS crystal calorimeter barrel. Scientists at the world's biggest atom smasher claimed the discovery of a new subatomic particle on July 4, calling it "consistent" with the long-sought Higgs boson - popularly known as the "God particle" - that helps explain what gives all matter in the universe size and shape.

For years, deep in an underground European laboratory, Chinese physicists have been contributing to one of the most ambitious scientific experiments ever attempted - a search for the missing link at the beginning of the universe.
