God Particle To Reveal More Secrets Of Universe

God Particle Universe

The machine that discovered the 'God Particle' may be about to reveal more secrets of the universe. The Large Hadron Collider was used to confirm the existence of the Higgs boson particle in July 2012.

Professor Peter Higgs

Professor Peter Higgs predicted the existence of such a particle in 1964. The particle reinforces the theory of an invisible force field which spans the entire universe. The Higgs field gives mass to other particles that form the basic building blocks of the universe.

The Higgs boson underpins the Standard Model of Particle physics. The Standard model allows for two types of fundamental particles.

Until the discovery of the Higgs boson, scientists could not fully explain how fundamental particles gained mass. They now say that particle interaction with the Higgs field is what gives everything in the universe its mass.

Scientists at CERN

Scientists at CERN say that without the Higgs field, the universe itself could not exist. Without mass, particles would never bind together to form any kind of object. Without the Higgs boson there would be no planets, no stars, no humans.. and no pizza.
