Geneva, Switzerland (TDN) -- Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva announced today the discovery of the ‘God particle’ or the subatomic particle known as a Higgs boson, which will help them explain why the universe is in its current form.
The ‘Higgs boson’ is believed to give matter to mass. Its existence was first theorized in 1964 by British Physicist Peter Higgs who at the time used its existence to explain the missing link in our understanding of how the universe was created from the so-called big bang.
Scientists made the announcement after carefully reviewing data collected from the collider in which atoms were smashed together at incredibly high speeds. They would eventually generate more than 300 trillion high speed collisions. Atoms are a form of matter, which may not be further broken down using any chemical means.
Scientists have for years proposed that the universe was created from the “Big Bang” where debris created by the initial bang could interact with other debris as it gathers mass, then form stars, planets and galaxies.
However, up to now they were unable to identify that subatomic particle, invisible to the naked eye, but which would have to be present to explain their version of how the universe came about.
Confirmation of the find of the ‘God particle’ could mean the confirmation of the ‘Big Bang’ theory.
The second test is scheduled for March 20 – 24 in Roseau, Dominica.
