Has nothing to do with god, just someone's poor explanation for the ignorant masses.

The Daily Fail has decided to tell everyone what CERN is going to announce on Wednesday even though there's no leaked evidence that the Higgs bosun has been found.

I will probably get part of this wrong, but here is my understanding. Under the Standard Model of Quantum physics, all forces are really particles which interact with with atoms, or parts of atoms. So electricity, magnetism, nuclear forces (strong and weak) and gravity are all caused by the interaction of particles on atoms. The holy grail of physics is to find one theory which explains all 4 forces (nuclear, gravity, etc). Magnetism and electricity were actually explained as different aspects of the same force by a man named Maxwell in the 1860's. The nuclear forces were figured out in the 1920's and 30's, and they were tied to the electro-magnetic theory in 50's thru the 70's. Gravity has not been integrated into this theory. One of the problems with the particle theory of force is why do some things have mass (you, me, stars, planets, etc) while some things don't- light photons, neutrinos, and other exotic things which have been proven to exist but to the best of our measurement (which keeps getting better) do not have mass. For simplistic purposes, consider mass to be what we 'weigh' when we put something on a weight scale. Photons would not ever weigh anything, no matter how massive a planet or sun their weight was measured on. Gravity can affect these items but cannot not make them 'weigh' anything, or more accurately, have any mass. The Higgs Boson is a theoretical particle which would allow this type of behavior to occur. It is that particle which causes things to have mass, at least theoretically, by interacting with atoms or the components of atoms. Scientists were able to predict that IF the Higgs Boson existed it had to be found at a certain energy level. The Large Hadron Collider is the first man made detector capable of producing the energy required to find the Higgs Boson. If they found it within the energy range that theory predicted then it may finally allow physicists to tie gravity to the other forces. If not, then physics has a lot of 'splainin' to do.

Higgs is the name of the man who figured out what the mass/energy level of the particle which causes mass would have to be.

Steve Zodiac: light photons


I may also be wrong but I thought photons had a minuscule mass.... I thought that solar sails were a tech that was proven to work at least in theory. Google tells me that that do work but a very quick search doesn't confirm the 'mass' theory

No, photons have energy and momentum, but no mass.

I would be impressed if they did find God, in particular.

I'd also have a few choice words for Him.

That means they don't know if they've found it.

Turns out it was the Flying Spaghetti Monster particle. Who knew?

Physicists first predicted that the Higgs Boson subatomic particle exists 48 years ago.

So what gave atoms mass prior to 48 years ago?

Yes and it resolves the solar neutrino problem by allowing them to change to any one of the three species.

So it's a particle whose existence actually disproves the existence of God? Isn't it ironic?

This has been reported in legitimate publications; why link to the Daily Fail? This isn't yet another story about a teacher farking a student or a girl with a mental disorder who will only eat pizza.

So they found a smaller particle and then they will find an even smaller particle, you see where I'm going.
