Higgs boson discovery

Published Jul 22, 2012 04:10am

INTERNATIONAL scientists said they had found signs of the Higgs boson, an elementary subatomic particle believed to have played a vital role in the creation of the universe after the Big Bang.

Peter Higgs is an 83-year-old British theoretical physicist who first proposed the existence of the particle in 1964 as the missing link of a grand theory of matter and energy, what is known as the Standard Model of Physics.

The boson is posited to have been the agent that gave mass and energy to matter after the creation of the universe 13.7 billion years ago, leading some to nickname it the ‘God particle’. God doesn’t play a particles game with the universe.

There is no ‘God particle’. CERN scientists are doing an elusion experiment for an elusive particle. Findings are only traces of illusion of the elusive boson. There was no Big Bang!
