Hints of the Higgs boson
After some recent events, I need to blog about something different.
A lab in America has seen more hints that the Higgs boson exists. Now, the physicists who got these measurements said they could disappear after further analysis – but if they don’t, then we’re a step closer to finding the elusive particle.
Of course, why do they care? The Higgs boson is supposed to explain why any particle that has mass actually does, through something called the Higgs field. If this is not found, the Standard Model will probably need to be adjusted or discarded, which is going to cause a bit of a mess.
