So this proves why many particles are catholic?

Well, that about wraps it up for God.

Mods asleep. Which flash will be green?

I know it's not a "hottie teacher has sex with under-age student" Daily Fail link but even so I think the potential discovery of a subatomic particle responsible for all mass is probably worthy of a fairly prompt green no?

Truly a momentous day for science. That being said...

This is such bad ass awesomeness, and I give an Internet high five, and this shot of Sailor Jerry is for CERN!

Please forgive me for this thread jack, but this Higgs boson. It 'gives' particles mass which means they are subject to the force of gravity.

Does the Higgs boson interact with dark matter?
 
2012-07-04 05:46:42 AM
Best of all, the Earth wasn't shrunk down to the size of a pea or anything.

Anyone know where the original story in the US the article originated from? The one that the Daily Fail got it from?

Here is some really great reading on the Higgs boson by Fark's own Phil Plait.

'It's hard not to get excited by these results,' said CERN Research Director Sergio Bertolucci.

Hard, yes, but doable.

Well clearly, one thing science has yet to discover is how to force shiatty websites to not hide autoplaying videos way down their farking pages.
 
2012-07-04 05:52:22 AM
New questions arise because of this.

Why are the laws of physics what they are? Instead of some other laws?

To find out, we'd have to recreate the conditions before the Big Bang. It would take decades of work by thousands of scientists in a particle accelerator powered by dump trucks of flaming grant money.
 
2012-07-04 05:52:32 AM
I will believe any scientific fact, whether fabricated or genuine, as long as it is verbally communicated to me by a person with a thick German accent.

Earth shattering science for some, miniature American flags for others!

So we can beat out chests today and cheer, "we're number one!"

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

Time to expand your horizons. It's what the Higgs boson would want.
 
2012-07-04 05:56:03 AM
Wow... This is pretty damn significant. Four years of smashing particles together at the speed of light, four years of searching for this one tiny speck. 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.

I'd like to announce my tremendous excitement that CERN found the Higgs and my tremendous disappointment in the autoplay video in the middle of the page.

I was really expecting a "Gives particles, your mom, mass" headline.

Since I heard someone say it, I CANNOT think of the LHC as anything but the Large Hardon Collider. I snort every time I hear it dammit.

yay science.

now about thos buffalo in montatna and the bambi plot to keep us dependant on muslin oul.

Cool. In three years we'll be able to manufacture them en masse, and they'll be be even smaller and used in all kinds of applications.

Good lord this. I was reading the article when suddenly BOOM! Loud thick accent stumbling over his words. I don't know if it was one of the scientists, or some janitor checking the podium, but man, was it loud and aggravating.

It's good that they found it; but was there really any other choice? Every scientist working on this knew the Higgs Boson existed...it had to. The sheer amount of science that would have to be tossed out the window if the Higgs Boson didn't exist is mind-blowing.
