How can we expect a lot of the youths to be interesting in science, when theories and terms such as the God Particle aren’t explained in more simplified terms! This is why I think Einstein was the “coolest’ scientist ever. He was “art” and for the people.
I am not a physicist…therefore I made an attempt to make this confusing subject of The God Particle a/k/a Higgs bison more simplified.
The God Particle aka Higgs boson is a name adopted by Nobel Prize-winning physicist, Leon Lederman.
Higgs boson is a Subatomic particle. Subatomic particles are smaller than an atom.
Electrons, neutrons and protons are the three main subatomic particles found in an atom.
The God Particle is a yet undetected particle thought to give all other particles their mass.
It is the key to understanding mass in the universe.
The particle’s ability to explain a lot about the universe earned it the cool nickname, the “God particle.”
