    Source: For India, 'God particle' is as much boson as Higgs - Hindustan Times

    Q?
    Why there is mass in every materiel ?
    How materiel from in bigbang when nothing exists ?

    and may more discovery like e=mc2 (which gives us proper use of energy except nuclear bomb )

    This is a great day for European physics.

    A nice educative video of Higgs Boson....

    Ever since the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) went online in 2008, physicists have been conducting experiments, hoping to finally prove or disprove the existence of The God Particle, otherwise known as the Higgs Boson. CERN (which operates the LHC) gives this basic introduction to the theorized particle:

    A major breakthrough in particle physics came in the 1970s when physicists realized that there are very close ties between two of the four fundamental forces – namely, the weak force and the electromagnetic force. The two forces can be described within the same theory, which forms the basis of the Standard Model. This ‘unification’ implies that electricity, magnetism, light and some types of radioactivity are all manifestations of a single underlying force called, unsurprisingly, the electroweak force. But in order for this unification to work mathematically, it requires that the force-carrying particles have no mass. We know from experiments that this is not true, so physicists Peter Higgs, Robert Brout and François Englert came up with a solution to solve this conundrum.

    They suggested that all particles had no mass just after the Big Bang. As the Universe cooled and the temperature fell below a critical value, an invisible force field called the ‘Higgs field’ was formed together with the associated ‘Higgs boson’. The field prevails throughout the cosmos: any particles that interact with it are given a mass via the Higgs boson. The more they interact, the heavier they become, whereas particles that never interact are left with no mass at all.

    That quick statement sets the stage for watching the video above. Here we have Daniel Whiteson, a physics professor at UC Irvine, giving us a fuller explanation of the Higgs Boson, mercifully using animation to demystify the theory and the LHC experiments that may confirm it sooner or later.

    ...and also for anyone looking towards the mysteries of the universe.

    Not Indian physics? Really I am surprised at you Armand. The kind of thing an Englishman would say:laugh:

    CERN is a European nuclear research programme with the mission of taking physics to the next level. There is nothing Indian about it. The LHC is located on the French-Suisse border. The results of testing for general consumption will be released, but any findings that give Europe the edge in research will be closely guarded secrets. Tens of billions were spent not just to give away.

    Theoretical Physics needs support from everybody and every nation. Scientific Knowledge was never kept hidden, and those civilizations who tried to do it lost it. There is a great difference between Theoretical Physics and Engineering. It takes on an average around 50 years to commercialize any scientific discovery.

    Just for your information:

    Has there ever been state level research conducted that wasn't for economic or national gain? Sorry, but we aren't that benevolent. It is a sad reality of the universe. :sad:

    Leave it! It's a great achievement for all of us. Btw 'Boson' is already signifying Indian contribution.

    What? China gets to boast about building something that has no relevance to mankind but France and Europe discover the next step in Physics and has to share credit with the world. That is hardly fair.

    Credit will be given where it is due. But Theoretical science needs to be put in public domain, the knowledge cannot be signed, sealed and put in a vault. I repeat Theoretical Science is not Engineering/Technology, it is an entirely different ball-game. In science things aren't invented, they are discovered, they already existed since the time of creation of this universe.

    There were several reasons behind the success of our race and demise of Neanderthals. One reason being Our race was social in nature, so any discovery, any new knowledge gained by an individual quickly spread through the existing population, for example discovery of fire, spears, wheel etc. Neanderthals were incapable of doing so because they were solitary and had little/no communication skills.

    'God particle' could spell doom for the universe
