Higgs-Boson particle likely found. Expected to be announced on Weds.
Scientists at Cern will announce that the elusive Higgs boson 'God Particle' has been found at a press conference next week, it is believed.
Five leading theoretical physicists have been invited to the event on Wednesday sparking speculation that the particle has been discovered.
Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider are expected to say they are 99.99 per cent certain it has been found - which is known as 'four sigma' level.
The Higgs boson is regarded as the key to understanding the universe. Physicists say its job is to give the particles that make up atoms their mass.
Without this mass, these particles would zip though the cosmos at the speed of light, unable to bind together to form the atoms that make up everything in the universe, from planets to people.
Despite 1,600 trillion collisions being created in the tunnel - there have been fewer than 300 potential Higgs particles.
Now it is thought that two separate teams of scientists, who run independent experiments in secret from each other, have both uncovered evidence of the particle.
That is very cool, indeed, but the big question is, will it solve world problems like:
greed(not a chance)
general douchebaggery?(YES! Douchebags everywhere are worried that the discovery of this particle will be the end of the road for them. Ed Hardy's financial empire will be in ruin and wanna be gangsters will now impress the ladies by talking about their philanthropic efforts.)
In other news, and I can't believe this wasn't mentioned in the article, but the first 'real world' application is expected to be a pithy little sarcastic punch line on Big Bang Theory, keeping the humour on the show 'cutting edge'.
Higgs boson is basically the last major thing in Standard Model of particle physic experiments left unproven.
Will it change our life a lot? Well, many current advance theories are formed with Higgs boson existence as a reality. So, probably not.
What's the big deal about it then? Higgs boson, or the God Particle has been romanticized by the media. Even if we could confirm its existence at 100% accuracy, it doesn't change the fact that we still face many questions in the field of theoretical physics. So, it's just another step in our (hopefully) right direction of studying this.
it won't change anything in our day to day but it could answer a few questions.
answers lead to more developed questions. and continuing to find answers to those questions further our understanding why things are they way they are.
and during this cycle, things get awesome

None of the people responsible for finding this particle get laid.
Srs? I don't even get credit for a successful pun? You see, he said, "explain it in lay persons terms" as in, someone that has not studied physics, and I replaced the definition to mean sex, in order to make a joke.
It's a particle that's responsible for giving matter mass. It's the particle that explains how gravity work.
Previously scientist were unsure if higgs-boson exist because they never seen one. So they were afraid that it doesn't exist. if it doesn't exist then our understanding of gravity and mass is all wrong.
