CERN has just announced that they have detected a new particle consistent with the predicted Higgs boson (a.k.a. "The God Particle"). This is huge! CERN has observed the particle tied to the field that gives everything mass! And its mass is at 125.3 GeV (just shy of 5-sigma confidence).
This is a pretty huge day for physics, the culmination of 50 years of work to detect that elusive but extremely massive particle!
I just wanted to share this with you guys. Anybody else excited about this?
