Missing for 48 years, Higgs finally finds his boson!

5 Jul

It’s now a fact. After being predicted by theoretical physicist Peter Higgs almost 50 years ago, the existence of the Higgs boson is now proof positive. The boson is an essential building block in the creation of the universe, and the validation of its existence virtually completes the Standard Model of particle physics.  Why is it important? The Higgs boson is a key element in creating mass. Without it, we our “stuff” wouldn’t stick together so we wouldn’t “be.”

That’s about as much as Comics A-Go-Go! is going to say on the matter (heh, matter..). Here’s what more informed people are going to tell you.
