The Higgs boson or Higgs particle
is a proposed elementary particle in the Standard Model of particle physics.
The Higgs boson's existence would have profound importance in particle physics because it would prove the existence of the hypothetical Higgs field — the simplest of several proposed mechanisms for the breaking of electroweak symmetry, and the means by which elementary particles acquire mass.

Tentatively announced July 4, 2012,
by the ATLAS and CMS teams at the Large Hadron Collider.

On 4 July 2012, the CMS and the ATLAS experimental teams at the Large Hadron Collider independently announced that they each confirmed the formal discovery of a previously unknown boson of mass between 125–127 GeV/c2, whose behaviour so far has been "consistent with" a Higgs boson.

Proof of the Higgs field (by observing the associated particle), and evidence of its properties, is likely to greatly affect human understanding of the universe, validate the final unconfirmed part of the Standard Model as essentially correct, indicate which of several current particle physics theories are more likely correct, and open up "new" physics beyond current theories.
If the Higgs boson were shown not to exist, other alternative sources for the Higgs mechanism would need to be considered.

higgs boson
after the breakthrough
I stretch arms and legs

A major breakthrough, tears came from the eyes of Peter Higgs the great scientist that predicted its existence 40 years ago in a quantum mechanics paper! Now the so called Standard Model has been completed and quantum physics can move on to other issues with a solid basis.
I would have loved to be part of the LHC crew.
The ku is my omage to all of them and especially to Peter Higgs.

The Higgs Boson is also called the particle of God,
because is the one responsible that the universe has substance, mass.
Withouth it there would be nothing solid etc.

Das Higgs-Boson, das viel beschworene Gottesteilchen, ist gefunden - das steht so gut wie fest. Bestätigt es die bisherige Theorie vom Aufbau unserer Welt? Forscher schüren bereits die Hoffnung auf eine neue Physik, die sogar die rätselhafte Dunkle Materie erklären könnte.

CERN Announces Discovery of Higgs-like Particle

The Higgs haiku:

Now we want you to wax eloquent on the discovery of the Higgs boson.
Give us your best haiku. That’s three lines — five syllables in the first, seven in the second, and five in the third — and we’ll read our favorites on air.

Way back When our Higgs
Bosons trapped just enough light
To make us Matter


The Higgs Boson asks:
"Who is this 'god' and what's it
Got to do with me?"
