So-called God Particle, a new particle that is consistent with the Higgs boson is discovered according to the head of the European Center for Nuclear Research. 




This subatomic particle is crucial for the understanding of the Universe, space, time, matter. It is the basic building block of the universe.




Shortly after the big bang when the universe was created, the Higgs boson came into being and gave all the other particles the substance that is why some refer to it as a "God particle." Its discovery was the one of the main names of the Large Hadron Collider, the most powerful particles generator that have ever built on the Swiss French border. Its collisions are so powerful that they recreate conditions existed shortly after the "big bang." 




The international effort to find it has used tremendous amounts of energy to crash subatomic particles into one another in giant underground tracks, where they are steered by magnetic fields. Several different experiments have been done by independent teams to ensure the accuracy. 




"The Higgs particle, if it's real, will show itself in different ways. We need for all of them to be consistent before we can say for sure we've seen it," Rob Roser, a physicist at the Department of Energy's Fermilab near Chicago, told said earlier this week. "This is one of the cornerstones of how we understand the universe, and if it's not there, we have to go back and check our assumptions about how the universe exists." 




It is believed that Fermilab's atom smasher, called the Tevatron, must have produced thousands of Higgs particles over its life before it was shut down last year after it was overshadowed by CERN's more powerful Large Hadron Collider.




"It's up to us to try to find them in the data we have collected," Luciano Restore, a physicist at Fermilab and the Italian National Institute for Nuclear Physics, said in a statement earlier this week.




"We have developed sophisticated simulation and analysis programs to identify Higgs-like patterns. Still, it is easier to look for a friend's face in a sports stadium filled with 100,000 people than to search for a Higgs-like event among trillions of collisions."


This program reveals the discoveries of a forgotten genius, many of which went virtually unnoticed for nearly a century. Read More...
