    A discovery of this size is a huge deal. It will eventually happen. It's just a question of time.

    I'm just curious as to what the real world implications of the discovery are.

    There aren't really any real world applications other than a fuller understanding of the way things work, and a sign that we have a lot further to go down the rabbit hole.
    Whoops.

    I'm highly doubtful that any will appear in my lifetime. And the pessimist in me thinks it will appear in weapons first.

    Yeah. Not a physicist, but I think this is a significant, but small step toward a Theory of Everything

    This extraordinary discovery proves that the Standard Model of Particle Physics is not only beautiful, but true.

    The poets told us that truth is beauty and beauty is truth, and the physicists have confirmed it.

    Not anytime soon, lol.

    Also, I kinda hope that never happens.The first step to manipulating higgs-boson particles is by accelerating them removing the mass from other particles. So matter can be erased. Not a technology I'm eager to wait around for.

    OMG I'm so excited!

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Read some more (in-depth) articles and I take it all back. Thanks for pointing that out.

    But still, we've got a long way to go before this is something we fully comprehend...and I'm excited for when we have a better idea of what the ramifications are for what we're looking at.
