What's colorless, flavorless, spins about *this* fast, and weighs in at around 140 GeV fully dressed?

Do you need another hint?

OK, it can produce 2 Ws so it's not the Seattle Mariners.

And this is important why?

Thread over.

I always though it should have been called the Chazzwozzer Boson.

They're looking for the biggest bosons.

/Big bosons usually mean that a particle puts out, I guess.

I read this as "Higgs bosom" and I left disappointed.
 
2011-07-24 07:45:03 PM  
"If the Higgs boson is not found, physicists would have to find some other mechanism to explain where particles get their mass."

Clearly its some quantum version of this:

I didn't think so.

I like to think in an alternate timeline we finished the SSC and Higgs boson is old news
 
2011-07-24 09:32:41 PM  
Meh. I heard about this last week.
 
2011-07-24 09:33:21 PM  
..Or was it next Thursday?

That alternate timeline destroyed itself when the SSC created its first stranglet.
 
2011-07-24 09:36:41 PM  
Big deal. I see bosons all the time.
 
2011-07-24 09:37:10 PM  
Quite frankly, I don't believe they will find it...or it will be something else.
There is likely another way of mass being applied. IMHO



/not trolling here...sincere. Good luck though.

I don't know if anyone else feels this way, but when I try to read and understand what the Higgs Boson is, I kinda start feeling like this.

You're a boson.

I'm really glad that they rediverted NASA funds into assisting with CERN a few years ago. It was truly the high point of Obama's unprecented 4th term as President.

Still not sure why they decided to transplant GInsberg's brain into an android body and start electing SCOTUS justices to 1000 year terms.. but the past 300 years of her rule have been fairly ok.

Gotta go. I need to be on Mars in 26 minutes.

Maybe the LHC Rap will help to explain.

You are composed of molecules.
Molecules are composed of atoms
atoms are composed of particles (neutron, electron, proton)
these particles are made of smaller particles (quarks)
quarks are made of even smaller things...

physicists are just slicing things up smaller and smaller, the weird thing is that things stop looking like physical objects and more like energy (even as big as electrons). So if things are like energy, they don't have mass, so what makes things heavy, what gives them mass? Higgs Boson is the current guess.

//smashing things to pieces at near light speed velocities.
///sounds like fun to me

You wait and see. The Lord will punish us for all of our scientific endeavors. He wants us to use our energy and minds to praise Him, not scurry around in space and seeking things He has hidden from us. Why are we searching for answers in particle accelerators (and wasting money doing it) when the answer is in our hands? The Good Book provides all the knowledge we shall ever need.

This 15 minute vid is fairly easy to understand. First bit is about the LHC and then Cox goes into an explanation of Higgs boson.

Are you a professional physicist with a legitimate capacity to opine on the subject, or just a contrarian tool?

It took everything I had not to laugh, as I would wake the baby in doing so! Thanks! XD

Crap! I read that as "bosom".

I read it as "Blossom" and thought NBC was scraping the bottom of the barrel worse than ever before.

ZAZ: What's colorless, flavorless, spins about *this* fast, and weighs in at around 140 GeV fully dressed?.


Since the top is at 172 GeV and we've been producing those, why would a Higgs at 140 GeV not have been seen in significant numbers already?

Now THOSE are some Bosons!

ps, we are just clouds of energy so nothing is real, or important...not even Pop-Tarts.

So, find the Higgs and we're halfway to Spike technology?

/Obscure? Possibly.
