Higgs Boson Particle found

Don't know what all the fuss was about today because Eric found one of those at our local builders yard months ago.

Re: Higgs Boson Particle found

I have never before seen so many people getting obviously very excited about something they are completely incapable of explaining to a layman!

OK, so they've found Higgs Boson: what exactly is the significanceof this?

50 odd years ago a bloke called Higgs realised there was something missing in atoms that would explain how they work, now its not missing anymore but still no one actually knows how they work.

Re: Higgs Boson Particle found

Ive really tried to understand what these scientists are getting excited about. i have even read the article in the sun (very slowly) and i have come to the conclusion that i havnt a clue what its all about.
