Symmetry Magazine, the monthly publication of the Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, featured SMU physics alum Ryan Rios in an article about physicists working at NASA's Johnson Space Center. Rios was a graduate student in the SMU Department of Physics and as part of a team led by SMU Physics Professor Ryszard Stroynowski spent from 2007 to 2012 as a member of the ATLAS experiment at Switzerland-based CERN's Large Hadron Collider.

Observed! SMU’s LHC physicists confirm new particle; Higgs ‘God particle’ opens new frontier of exploration
Physicists from SMU and around the globe were euphoric Wednesday with the historic revelation that a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson “God” particle has been observed. Described as a great triumph for science, the observation is the biggest physics discovery of the last 50 years and opens up what SMU scientists say is a vast new frontier for more research.
