Searching for heavy higgs bosons with tau pairs.

A Higgs boson matching that predicted in the Standard Model was found in 2012. However, many theories such as string theory, which attempts to unite quantum mechanics and gravity, tells us there should be at least four more. ATLAS has just published a search for a second Higgs boson, with a mass between 2 and 20 times that of the first, decaying to pairs of tau leptons. In many models this search is the most sensitive yet - but still no evidence for another Higgs boson is found.
