Summary:
Scientists working at the world's biggest atom smasher in Switzerland say they have discovered what could be the long-sought Higgs boson, a subatomic particle dubbed the "God particle" because it is believed to give all matter in the universe size and shape.

Seeing the First Evidence of the Higgs Boson Particle

Seeing the First Evidence of the Higgs Boson Particle

FORA.tv (Nov. 29, 2012) — CUNY's Institute for Theoretical Sciences discusses the discovery of the Higgs boson particle. In July, researchers at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland, announced that they found convincing evidence of a new particle called the Higgs boson, using the Large Hadron Collider, the world's most powerful particle accelerator. Sometimes called the "God particle," the Higgs boson is a sub-atomic particle that is a building block of the universe. Kyle Cranmer, Assistant Professor of Physics at New York University, and Neal Weiner, Associate Professor of Physics at New York University, discuss how scientists made the discovery and why it is significant. The NYU Experimental High Energy Physics group has been a key part of a world-wide collaboration in the search for the Higgs boson.

Stephen Hawking: God Particle Could Destroy Universe

Buzz60 (Sep. 8, 2014) — Professor Stephen Hawking is saying theoretically the Higgs Boson or the God Particle is very unstable at high energies and thinks that it's possible with a large collider, much larger than any we've constructed, the god particle could break down time and space itself, destroying everything.
