They Found the Higgs!

They found the Higgs Boson! Probably. Whatever, I won't get into that. But if you're a bit confused about it, apparently you aren't the only one. Please watch the vid.

And happy Friday.

At least they haven't destroyed the universe (yet) in order to find it. About all I know about the Higgs Boson was that it was used in this "FlashForward" book I read and in the movie "Solaris" (the 2003 version).

I'm disappointed in the video, I thought it would have more explanations.

I bet my three-year-old knows what it is. We have some nerdy discussions around here. I need to video tape him explaining how rockets work - hilarious but basically accurate.

I am kind of worried they're going to open a portal to another world - havent't they watched any movies? It's all very risky.

I love how I get my news these days.

That was pretty funny.

But I don't believe they've found it. I think they want to find it, so they think they have, but I'm betting it's going to turn out like the whole neutrino thing. Have to admire their perseverance though.

It's so exciting. I love how Stephen Hawking bet against this and now owes $100.00 to a colleague.

I'll have to ask hubby if he knows. He always looks at me like I'm crazy because I don't know these things.

Oh....they had this on the news, but I didn't hear it called the "Higgs Boson". (Half way through the video I gave up and googled the answer..thankfully!)

This was big news all last week. It's incredible. But the one question that I think is interesting is: what if it's not Higgs. What if it's something else they've found...???

Hahaha that reminds me that I forgot to read the article about it the other day.
