You are probably aware of the giant undertaking of European scientiest to build the Large Hadron Collider. It is a large underground circular tunnel to provide particle accleration to detect the existence of phsical properties whch could lead to the opening of the laws of nature. Since being built 10,000 scientists from over 100 countries and hundreds of
universities and national laboratories (Fermi, for example) have worked on the investigations. The building under the ground of
France and Switzerland began around 2008 and testing and setbacks and accidents slowed the process, but beginning in
2010 the collider began its work.
Now, HAVE SCIENTISTS CRACKED THE BIG PUZZLE ?
That is: the creation of the universe. You are also probably know about the scientific term, “the God Particle”. This is a subatomic particle that has been predictred by other data to exist, but so far there had not been enough proof. This is why the collider
was needed. However, recently the word is that the experiments may have identified “the God particle.” The scientific name is Higgs boson. Up to now it was considered as only a strong possibility that it existed, or almost certain; now it will be “beyond reasonable doubt”.
Oh my, here we go again, ….Science undermining the fundies! This is the scientific explanation for the origin of the universe and the non-neccesity of a “God” What will this do to that creation museum ?
A news conference is schedule for July 4 in Europe to announce the recent developments. Obviously, July 4 is just another day in Europe..
Moreover, you may recall that the United States was going to build it first in the Dallas Fort Worth area, but it got all tangled in politics and some religion(that “god Particle” thing) and it was discontinued after actually beginning the project. So, we have lost out on all the business and commerce generated by science. It has been Europe’s gain!
