Sussex physicists have taken a small step towards fulfilling Einstein's dream of proving there is only one fundamental force in nature.

Following last year's discovery of the Higgs boson particle -- the so-called 'God particle' that answers how particles have mass - Calmet and Atkins looked at how the Higgs field interacts with gravity. Besides giving mass to all known particles, it's possible that the Higgs boson played a significant role in the expansion of the Universe after the Big Bang. Although its existence had been predicted, nobody knew for sure. Now we're looking to see if the way it behaves is also as scientists have predicted -- and early results look promising.' Through playing with their equations and using data from the Large Hadron Collider, the scientists have been able to constrain the Higgs boson's interaction with gravity. 'The discovery of the Higgs boson has deep implications for gravitational theories that explain the evolution of our universe.'
