"God Particle" Found!




After years of searching, the Higgs Boson or "God Particle" has been found.  This will help Physicists understand better how our Universe works.  See my other blog http://sacerdotvs.blogspot.com/2011/12/god-particle.html

I will update this post as more information becomes available.  I am extremely excited about this find!

**UPDATE**

The Standard Model is now closer to completion than before.  The Standard Model is basically a theory that lists the sub atomic particles that compose everything.  It highlights the name, mass, charge, and spin of particles that compose the fermion or particles that have a spin that are the integer multiple of a half.  In other words, the particles within the particles, or elementary particles.

This discovery is important because now we can understand better what gives mass to everything.  We are aware of the forces that pull and repel particles, but what holds it all is what has been eluding us for decades.  More is yet to be learned.  We still do not understand what gravity is exactly.   Hopefully the more we study the Higgs Boson the more we will learn what gravity is and maybe discover even new unseen particles and forces.

****Update March 6 2013****

Physicists are still not sure whether the particle found last summer is indeed the Higgs Boson.  More tests are being conducted to make sure the particle is the one that has been theorized to exist and which is responsible for mass.

****Update March 14, 2013 ****

It is official!  The particle believed to be the Higgs Boson is indeed the Higgs Boson!  With only 126 times the mass of a proton, the Boson gives mass to particles.
