    Default New Boson found!! Possibly Higgs!

    Heaviest Boson yet discovered in the 125 - 126 GeV range! Confirmed by ATLAS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Higgs boson has to do with the unification of field guage theory and understanding how particles "get" their mass/how mass works in particles. The standard model cannot explain certain phenomena most importantly it contradicts general relativity in certain situations such as what happens at the event horizon of a black hole/happened at the big bang. Higgs could help on the grand quest for a unified theory of physics aka a theory of everything that would explain all physical interaction

    Exciting! It'll be even better when everything gets all packaged up with more data and cross-checked into something more than a blip on the radar.

    Don't want this turning into another "neutrinos faster than the speed of light" thing.

    It was a 5 sigma event, very high probability. this is a bit different than the neutrino situation. there is a 99.99995 chance the result can be reproduced.
    Whoops.

    I'm just waiting this discovery to translate into different tech on the market.

    You'll be waiting quite a while then I think Higgs is more important for it's theorhetical ramifications. If you want revolutions look at computing, biotech, nanotechnology. Soooo much stuff going on in meta-materials right now.
