Whats the whole talk about Higgs
« on: 15/12/2011 11:34:05 »
CAn anyone give some easy to understand information to wht implications could the discovery of this Higgs boson particle would have on our understanding of the universe. What gaps would it fill and if this would leave to any more insight into the subject like the origins of the higgs boson itself and so on.

The standard model predicts its existence so the implications of not finding it would be really profound (if it didn't exist).
But not finding it does not mean that it does not exist, it might require yet higher energy levels.
