Higgs Boson (God Particle)

Finding Higgs Boson

Why is it that some particles have mass and others do not? What controls the amount of mass a particle has? One hypothesis is that an elusive particle called the “Higgs boson” is responsible for giving all other particles their mass. Since the Higgs boson controls all other particles, it is sometimes referred to as the “God particle.”

Why is it Called the “God Particle”?

The long-sought particle acquired the popular—or unpopular—nickname because it controls the nature of other particles. The Higgs boson could go a long way toward explaining the way God designed the universe.

Big Bang and Higgs Boson

The Higgs boson has been incorporated into Big Bang theory as part of a theory called “inflation.” It is the Higgs boson that is believed to make the extremely rapid expansion in inflation theory possible. We should keep in mind that no experiment can prove how the universe formed.
