Just hours from now, physicists could announce they're 99.9936 percent sure the Higgs boson exists, according to experts on the hunt for the so-called God particle.

- If you guys know any physics at all, you should be able to understand that if the Higgs did not exist, nothing in the universe would have any mass, which means that nothing could come together, form the basic molecules to react and create life itself.
This isn't a hype. Trust me, I'm very closely connected to this discovery.Jul 4, 2012

- Did they found it based on the theory that it needs to exist? It's like a big circle (LHC). What now? Another 10 billion to study its properties? But they should have figured out those based on the theory already. The human genome project costed far fewer than this, I think.Jul 4, 2012
- I have been following this since before it was incorrectly called the God particle. I read every thing they release on it and I am very excited about the news. The only thing I would like to know is will this lead to any further advances in our understanding or will this just cement the existing theory. I mean if we know exactly what gives mass to matter then are we going to be able to manipulate this force? Is antigravity around the corner? What is next???Jul 4, 2012
