Aar1012: James F. Campbell: Aar1012: It would take decades of work by thousands of scientists in a particle accelerator powered by dump trucks of flaming grant money.

You're not just an asshole, you're an ignorant asshole. Feel proud of yourself.

Wow...someone really doesn't like 'Futurama'


I've seen all of the old episodes and none of the new ones. I've also spent too much time in the Politics tab; I simply thought you were an ignorant anti-science asshole conservative (but I repeat myself) who was implying that this sort of research was a waste of time with the "flaming grant money" line.

Oh God no. This line was just the first thing to came to mind with this article. Which is amazog since it's 6am. Normally, I wouldn't be able pronounce the word 'Higgs-Boson' at that time, let alone find a pop culture quote for.

miss diminutive:

The link has a live feed from the CERN news conference, so maybe you can click a Daily Fail site and not feel ashamed.



Nah, it's well deserved. Daily Fail and its intended audience hates everything related to science, progress or the improvement of mankind in any way.
They will find a way to turn this against atheists and welfare.

And just think, if the SSC had been built in Texas, we would've had this result years ago.

Well yeah, but that's kind of the point of science. Assertions are one thing, even with mountains of evidence in it's favor. You can assert that it has to exist, you can assert how it exists, why it exists, where it exists... But when you ask the question "does it exist" a scientist should say "Probably... hey let's get a massive particle accelerator and find out!"

Repetition in solidifying results is one of the cornerstones of Science. You have a hypothesis? Prove it... alright, now prove it again.

Rinse, repeat, and you MIGHT get a Theory.

Actually, it would be a good way to cover your ass with more conservative Europeans. They wouldn't be as annoying as US conservatives but you still want to protect your ass.

Imagine how the GOP would treat this if it happened in the US. Romney would be running ads on how it was mismanaged funds for degenerate science or something like that.

Where is the link to the data?

I rarely trust press conferences for my great scientific discoveries.

Show me the papers.
 
2012-07-04 06:26:30 AM
This is pretty far over my head. I guess the real question is exactly what the properties of the Higgs boson are, and how they can be utilized/manipulated. On the livefeed, one of the podium dudes said they were still working on that.

I understand how they wanted to hold a "we found it!" press conference moment. They've been weathering controversy after controversy on the amount of funding it takes. But it seems like too early to be breaking out the champagne yet.

INeedAName: Inn ideyot turms pleas? k, thx.


Alright, you know how when you jump, you fall back down? Well that's cause of gravity, you're affected by gravity cause you have mass. In fact, everything that is affected by gravity has mass.

We, for a very long time, had NO CLUE why things had mass. It was a mind boggling mystery. Mass? Why!?

Higgs Boson particle is why, and there's a strong possibility we just found it.


/MASSIVE oversimplification I know.

INeedAName: Inn ideyot turms pleas? k, thx.


40+ years ago theoretical physics guys, just think of them as math guys, theorized that there must be a particle responsible for mass, the building block of our universe.

They believe within a reasonable certainty that they have proven the theory correct. This validates a bunch of work that has been done since then under the assumption such a particle exists.

It also validates the building of the Hadron Collider. The collider is based off of that old Einstein shorthand of e=mc2. They have been hurling particles to smash them together to capture the decay of the particle in question to prove it's existence.

Savvy?

Considering the nature of this particle, I'm surprised we found it so soon. Cheers all around, and I await with bated breath what this means, exactly, for physics and science in general.

Your move, God.
