The territory where the Higgs boson may be found continues to shrink. The latest data from the collider experiments at the Department of Energy's Fermilab now exclude a significant fraction of the allowed Higgs mass range established by earlier measurements. Those experiments predict a Higgs mass between 114 and 185 GeV/c2. The CDF and DZero results carve out a section in the middle of this range and exclude a mass between 160 and 170 GeV/c2. Full Story

The National Science Foundation (NSF) is an independent federal agency that supports fundamental research and education across all fields of science and engineering. In fiscal year (FY) 2018, its budget is $7.8 billion. NSF funds reach all 50 states through grants to nearly 2,000 colleges, universities and other institutions. Each year, NSF receives more than 50,000 competitive proposals for funding and makes about 12,000 new funding awards.
