Scientists reveal glimpse of 'God particle'

Large Hadron Collider scientists have reported glimpsing the Higgs-boson particle for the first time.

The findings were revealed at a seminar in Geneva today. Two teams have been conducting experiments that have both hinted at the existence of the particle and which have generated great excitement in the scientific community. Experts have been quick to emphasise that there isn't enough evidence yet to claim a formal discovery but nonetheless things are looking very promising. "These are intriguing hints but please be cautious - we have not found it or excluded it yet," said Rolf-Dieter Heuer, director-general of Cern.

"At a specially-arranged seminar at the Cern laboratory in Geneva, researchers presented clues in their data which suggest experts may have pinned down the "God particle" at last."

and for those like me who thought the Cern Black Hole _End of World scenerio in 2012. Well I don't think they will have it isolated and the funding and the proper experiment implented in time for 2012. Maybe later but not now. If I am wrong please help us non-scientist understand. Would this God Particle be the end of us in 2012 like most people believe? Frankly, all that 2012/end of the world/black hole ect is just a bunch of super bull....

Is "intriguing" a scientific term ?
Comment icon #11 Posted by Dougal on 14 December, 2011, 9:37
This whole myth about a mass particle is nonsense. Mass is a dimension, not a physical entity. Mass is a dimension much like length and time are dimensions. It is a property of something, not the thing, itself. Searching for a mass particle is as absurd as searching for a length particle and a time particle. Evidence that mass is a dimension is no further away than Classical Mechanics. The unit of momentum is equal to mass times length times frequency (reciprocal time). Did you see that? MASS times velocity is equal to momentum. Mass is a dimension and dimensions arrange to form units, all of ... [More]

But the question remains if they isolated the "God Particle" how will be able to experiment. They would need alot more funding as well as time and for those like me who thought the Cern Black Hole _End of World scenerio in 2012. Well I don't think they will have it isolated and the funding and the proper experiment implented in time for 2012. Maybe later but not now. If I am wrong please help us non-scientist understand. Would this God Particle be the end of us in 2012 like most people believe? I don't know if this is off-topic or not, but, IMHO... The "Cern Black Hole_End of World scenerio in... [More]

An electron is 1836x less massive than a proton. They exhibit equal charge. The Higgs exists. That said, it doesn't mean ****. CERN has been looking in the wrong direction since its very inception. But I guess it all has to start somewhere. In the meantime, we'll keep to our heel, wondering just how long anything can remain unobservable. Or better yet, we'll have a decent laugh, that anyone might wonder for the ways of nothing and still fail to grasp the most obvious answers. If only we all had free will, or the fates saw fit to enslave everyone the same. But you go on believing you're alive, ... [More]

I'm tipping CERN will soon find a financial black hole the way things are in Europe.

I'm tipping CERN will soon find a financial black hole the way things are in Europe. Actually, I doubt that. While things certainly look bleak in Europe, science like this is typically given a rather high priority. Secondly, a lot of the economical problems in Europe are, in my honest opinion, more psychological that actually real. Cheers, Badeskov

I dont get it did they name it "God" particle to mess with religion

I dont get it did they name it "God" particle to mess with religion No. The term `God partical` is a subtract term to explain a partical that explains everything. Hence it`s an anti god explanation as it would explain a universe with out a god creator. Not anti religion but I hope that would be the course of such. God and religion are two different things.

I dont get it did they name it "God" particle to mess with religion actually the original author named it the goddamn particle because it was so goddamn hard to find. But went with a more sensational title for the media.
