Scientists at CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research) have claimed the discovery of a new particle consistent with the Higgs boson. The announcement represents a significant milestone in the 45-year quest to fathom the secrets of the universe. The new particle helps explain how matter attains its mass.

CERN’s director Rolf Heuer said: “We have now found the missing cornerstone of particle physics.”

Data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, revealed a “bump” corresponding to a particle weighing in at 125.3 gigaelectronvolts (GeV), approximately 133 times heavier than the protons that lie at the heart of every atom.

polkingbeal67: I get a tickle in my throat when I talk about Earthlings.
smolin9: Scoff it up!
polkingbeal67: Apparently they call it the ‘God particle’.
smolin9: Yes. On our planet, of course, we call it the treacletron. The ‘God particle’, mmm, that reminds me. The Earthlings have this joke: a Higgs bosun goes into a church. The priest says ‘What are you doing here?’ The Higgs bosun says ‘You can’t have mass without me’.
polkingbeal67: If I don’t laugh, is it still a joke?
smolin9: If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
polkingbeal67: If I zap you with a couple of micro beam plasma blasts, will you see stars?

About thespeedofdark

David Winship has written an unauthorised autobiography and several critically disdained literary tomes. His work is frequently compared with Steinbeck, Orwell and Hemingway, but unfortunately Mike Steinbeck, Daisy Orwell and Howard Hemingway were all terrible writers. He has been totally overlooked for the most prestigious literary awards worldwide, which is a shame as most of the words are spelled correctly. In fact, his books contain material that ranks with the finest literary works in history: all the right letters are there, just not necessarily in the right order.

Dave’s blog (The Speed Of Dark Blog) is part of his crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale. It may well be that his whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.
