We present a new measurement of the bottom quark mass in the MS scheme at the renormalization scale of the Higgs boson mass from measurements of Higgs boson decay rates at the LHC: mb (mH) = 2.6 +0.36-0.31 GeV. The measurement has a negligible theory uncertainty and excellent prospects to improve at the HL-LHC and a future Higgs factory.
Scientists, publishing in Nature, have found that a hybrid antimatter-matter atom behaves in an unexpected way when submerged in superfluid helium.
