Today, on March 30th, the first step towards discovering the Higgs Particle was made, often refered to as the God Particle no less, for today the LHC made it's first successful particle collision. Using as much as seven trillion electronvolts (TeV) of energy they smashed together protons at extreme speeds and energies, marking the first step towards understanding things like what mass and gravity really is, in effect closing in to explain the physics behind our mathmatical models explaining why for instance E=mc^2 really works.... Great work, Geneva!

Since physicists have no explanation for why equal amounts of matter & anti-matter didn't arise & cancel each other out shortly after the posed big bang,

how do they know, with all their reckless atom smashing, that they won't uncover [break through to] that anti-matter and annihilate all our standard matter & Universe?

What a big dangerous waste of money...So what else does it do?
or WHAT DOES IT REALLY DO?

It's not antimatter they are researching at LHC, they try to create the elusive Higgs particle, a completely different concept. You watch too many movies.

They should figure out a way to make it into a weapon! j/k

I hope this doesnt become the next E=MC2

Even if the Higgs Boson is discovered it won't change much. It will then go to: "What is the Higgs Boson made of?" Then what's that made of, and so forth and so on.

Well, if they "find" the particle, they would already know what it would be made of, since they themselves would already have the formula, since they would be the ones who had made (read (re-)constructed) it.

Well... this hog machine has been eating electric for two weeks now. So, what's the discovered solution to producing anti-gravity dark energy?

You may want to check the stove in your kitchen, there might be something cooking there, consuming electricity, and yes, recipes often take time. Do you rush to taste the beef stew 30 seconds after you put all the ingredients in the pot?

so... Did we achieve the great 7 Tev yet?. It points to 3.5

3.5 TeV per beam = 7 TeV energy in center of mass

3.5*2=7

seven trillion electronvolts


Is that enough to power my Flux Capacitor?


For all the money we spent on the LHC and all the time it spent being repaired, we better find this thing and soon.

So.. .how do you flush a God particle? Just turn the power off? What if it has a life of its own and feeds on surrounded energy

I personally think the "God particle" will be an anticlimax, and not be of much importance for our understanding of physics. But that's me...

That's an interesting thought

Discovering that space is permeated with Higgs field seems like a pretty cool thing to me!

However, many people do agree that there can be even more exciting stuff to be discovered, such as the whole supersymmetry sector.

Sorry, got back home dead drunk and for some reason I figured I'd write that silly, undisciferable remark. Please ignore.
