Collisions at the Large Hadron Collider can produce many things

Dennis Overbye in the New York Times talks about recreating the conditions a trillionth of a second after the Big Bang, and says:

"...relics not seen in this part of space since the universe cooled 14 billion years ago - spring fleetingly to life, over and over again in all their possible variations, as if the universe were enacting its own version of the "Groundhog Day" movie."

One of these relics might be the Higgs boson. Its mass must be very large, and it would decay in less than a nano-second
