The existence of the Higgs Boson has up until now been a scientific hypothesis on which much of our knowledge of the universe is based.
The controversial Large Hadron Collider in Geneva has been the largest of colliders working toward this discovery, and although the results still need to be verified, it’s said to be the strongest evidence yet proving the existence of the sub atomic particle responsible for mass.
Basically, if there was no Higgs particle, there would be no us!
Thankful however that there seems to be such a thing, Angus Randall spoke to Prof. Anthony Thomas from the Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics Adelaide Node for an explaination of this complex scientific discovery.
