Higgs particle found?
July 4, 2012 |
Have scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider at the physics laboratory CERN found the Higgs boson particle? Yes! Well, maybe… So why is this so exciting?
The Higgs boson was predicted in the early 1960s as the particle that gives matter its mass. Without mass, the universe as we know it would never have formed. It’s taken years of research by thousands of scientists to find the Higgs. More research is needed to ‘confirm’ their discovery, but scientists are pretty confident the particle is the Higgs boson.
