what does it do?
was waiting for this thread. can intelligent people talk about this with words i will understand please
so, that's an important part of a scientific theroy - making good predictions that then can be proven scientifically. which, if they've found it, means that the Standard Model is closer to being the accepted theory of how quantum mechanics work.
it's been a few months since i read anything about it, so i might be a bit woolly on the details, but it's a good thing to at least maybe have found.
At a base level, it explains how other elementary particles have mass as they "get" mass through the Higgs mechanism.
Whereas everyone has an opinion on what makes a decent spread.
Other than "hey that's pretty cool".
Once bitten, twice shy and all that - I'll wait 'til they are 99.9999% sure they've got the Higgs Boson trapped in a jar
the universe or something.
love the fact that absolutely no-one's got a fucking clue what this bullshit's about.
Didnt they predict a mass of ~140Gev and they found something at ~120?
Sounds like they may have 'found' a boson, but possibly not the higgs
it explains it really well
?"This whole story sounds very fishy to me, almost like a conspiracy to take over the world. If the scientests are the only people that understand this higgs bosum, then what are they going to do with it? make a bomb even bigger then the atomic bomb? cause another 911 by knocking down the towers with invisable rays? because this higgs thing is invisble, and I wouldnt put anything past the people that control the world (ie) bankers. The money for this project i feel came from the new world order who's only desire is to control the world. See through the LIES, and DEFEAT the new world order!!!!!"
