/It's the "Goddamn particle". To the extent that it's the "god particle", it's the "GOD!" (exasperated yell) particle.

//At least with the popular-science name a new generation of stoner-mystics have something other than string theory to obsess over (and completely misinterpret).

Actually, it was just a victim of censorship. The physicist who coined the term actually wanted to call it "the goddamn particle," but his editor changed it.

Durendal: Steve Zodiac:

while some things don't- light photons, neutrinos, and other exotic things.

Didn't they figure that neutrinos do have mass, even if it is incredibly slight?


LOL, Daily Fail

GAT_00: cman: Can someone dumb it down even more for a moron like me? Thank you

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.


Dude, there is leaked evidence of a Higgs Bosun discovery about every 3 days.
 
2012-07-02 12:07:45 AM  

Because People in power are Stupid: Physicists first predicted that the Higgs Boson subatomic particle exists 48 years ago.

So what gave atoms mass prior to 48 years ago?


Tiny lead weights.

/Higgs destroyed an entire industry overnight.

Majick Thise: 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.


Photons have zero mass, but they still carry kinetic energy. Similarly, a magnetic field has no mass, yet it also exchanges kinetic energy between charged particles that do have mass.

Because such a budget would weigh heavily on education and research and investment in the infrastructure, and thus would anger the sizable proportion of Americans who are morally opposed to book-learnin'?

The management at Cern want the two teams of scientists to reach the 'five sigma' level of certainty with their results - so they are 99.99995 per cent sure - such is the significance of the results.

Goddamn management. "Yeah, sure, we can get you more decimal points. We'll just go flog the scientists harder. Sorry, Law of Diminishing Rewhats?"

Fark Me To Tears
That means they don't know if they've found it.

Know how I know you have no idea how science works?

tarheel07: So it's a particle whose existence actually disproves the existence of God? Isn't it ironic?

/dontcha think?


By definition, anything supernatural is not provable or disprovable scientifically. So I would not consider that ironic, no.

I don't know who's responsible for the term 'God particle,' but it's an ill conceived term. It's got absolutely nothing to do with any gods, at least not any more or less than another other particles do.

I suppose the appellation comes from the fact that it's supposed to impart mass to other particles, and that's a very important thing to understand, critical to many scientific theories and puzzles, and doubtless many eventual breakthroughs and advances, too. But it's indulging in no little hyperbole to call this a godlike power, especially of a nonsentient subatomic particle. I know it's meant in jest, but there's just no way that it can't be misleading and even offensive to many laymen.

Well, the link to the youtube video of it had been posted, but I can see it getting passed over if it weren't investigated.

Why not spend that money on something useful - like education or porn?

malaktaus: 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.


If you've found this or any similar story in more reputable journals, please do share them. I haven't found it anywhere else yet. I've got a suspicion there's no story here at all, it's just the Fail doing what it does best -- nothing informative. I didn't even bother reading it, I just came here for the physics talk and funny dog pictures.

Unfortunately, smart people have no inherent powers under the law just for being smart. Our democratic system requires that all citizens at least potentially have a voice in the process, and who gets to do what is fundamentally decided by popular vote. And it turns out that most citizens are not very smart, and don't elect smart people to do things like that.

Steve Zodiac: 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.


So is this Higgs Boson the elementary particle responsible for my toast always landing butter side down?

Because f*ck that particle.

So yeah, maybe it was a good idea for someone to point that out right away.
