Default Higgs Boson and End of Universe?

This sounds interesting...

http://www.livescience.com/27218-hig...se-future.html

But, I don't really trust popular science article to get something like this right. For some reason, a Google search of Joseph Lykken isn't turning up any actual science papers.

Anyone got any ideas for where I else might try to get an accurate idea of what actually happened here?

Try these links:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-21499765
http://aaas.confex.com/aaas/2013/web...ssion6035.html

The BBC link was where I first read about this idea; it led to the AAAS page.

Speaking of M49, there's a galaxy called that. It's 51700000-57300000 ly away. So if a Higgs-based doomsday occurs in that galaxy, we'll be safe for at most 57885161 years.
