THE POSSIBLE DISCOVERY OF THE HIGGS WILL SHAKE THE FOUNDATIONS OF PHYSICS

THE POSSIBLE DISCOVERY OF THE HIGGS WILL SHAKE THE FOUNDATIONS OF PHYSICS
Michio Kaku on April 25, 2011, 10:25 PM

"The two things you’ve probably been hearing about the most since the LHC had its first collision is the possibility for creating dark matter and the discovery for the elusive Higgs Boson (God Particle). With the thousands of subatomic particles that make up a jigsaw puzzle, it’s always had one missing piece in the center that we have yet been able to discover and that’s the Higgs Boson. Physics doesn't really have any answers to explain where mass comes from or why matter has mass in the first place. The discovery of it will not only complete the Standard Model as it exists today but will literally shake the very foundation of our understanding of the Universe we live in."

Nice article on what the LHC is really doing and its goals.
