Scientists Will Announce the Existence of “God Particle” This Week
Scientists from the world’s biggest atom smasher have planned to announce on Wednesday that sufficient evidences have been found that “God Particle” does exist.
Although the scientists from the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) have not discovered the particle but the researchers at the Swiss-French border of the CERN’s vast complex have reported that extensive data has been obtained to show that Higgs Boson (God particle) exists but have not been seen yet.
Two independent team of physicists, working on ATLAS and CMS experiments separately to ensure accuracy, will present their work about the Higgs Boson on July 4 at CERN’s vast complex on the Swiss-French border. CERN plans to accompany the announcements with meetings in Geneva. More data on Higgs boson will be revealed by the two teams at physics meetings in October and December.
"I agree that any reasonable outside observer would say, 'It looks like a discovery,'" British theoretical physicist John Ellis, a professor at King's College London who has worked at CERN since the 1970s, told The Associated Press. "We've discovered something which is consistent with being a Higgs."
“We now have more than double the data we had last year,” said CERN Director for Research and Computing, Sergio Bertolucci, “that should be enough to see whether the trends we were seeing in the 2011 data are still there, or whether they’ve gone away. It’s a very exciting time.”
The atom smasher at CERN is the world’s biggest atom smasher that helps to study the suspected phenomenon of dark matter and antimatter through the high energy collisions of protons.
Scientists are trying to study Higgs Boson as this would solve the confusion of the creation of the Universe by confirming the standard model of physics that explains what gives mass to the matter as the concept is that the other particles attract Higgs bosons and as a result their mass increases.
The concept of Higgs Boson was given by the physicist Peter Higgs and others in 1960s.
