The God Partical Has Been Found

This is a site about the recently discovered particle called the Higgs Bosone, which is also called the God particle, because it is thought that it originated from the Big Bang and participated in the formation of other subatomic particles, from which all the matter in the entire universe is made. It is named the scientist Peter Higgs, who suggested the existence of this particle back in 1964... The European Organization for Nuclear Research recently announced that they have the Bosone of Higgs.

Because of the fact, that the Higgs Bosone is highly unstable, it was impossible for the scientists till now to create it. After the The Large Hadron Collider was built near Geneva, things changed and physicist started the chase for the mysterious particle.

The CMS team claimed they had seen a "bump" in their data corresponding to a particle weighing in at 125.3 gigaelectronvolts (GeV) - about 133 times heavier than the protons that lie at the heart of every atom.

The Higgs Bosone can help scientists find answers to some difficult questions about the birth of the universe, how matter attains its mass, and existence at all. All the matter we can see in space is only 4% of the entire Universe, the rest made of mysterious dark matter and dark energy. This could be really helpful to understanding the 96% of the Universe that remains mystery. The hunt for this particle lasted 45 years.

What Is the Higgs Bosone?

Here is a nice video explaining the God particle. Here you can watch the famous theoretical physicist John Ellis, answering the question "What is the Higgs boson?":
