I couldn’t end the week without mentioning the biggest scientific discovery of our lifetimes – yes I am talking about, The Higgs Boson. Physicists all over the world rejoiced and drank champagne to celebrate the discovery of the elusive subatomic particle – Higgs Boson or God particle, which is believed, would unravel the mysteries of the origin of the universe including the origin of life on earth.
Now all said and done, I cannot pretend that I understand very well, what the Higgs Boson is or why we are supposed to get excited about it. All I could make out was that we have discovered a subatomic particle that could be the reason why anything (read matter) would have mass at all.
The media is filled with articles and in my quest to understand the God Particle, I read some and here are some links that would help you understand (at least try) what is going on?
Alternatively, watch the video and let me know what you think.
Have a lovely weekend!!!
