Jim Kelley asked the Naked Scientists: I've heard that they Higgs Boson is what gives mass to objects. I've also heard that when objects approach the speed of light they gain mass and when they go the speed of light they have infinite mass. How does this work with regards to the Higgs boson? Do objects approaching the speed of light draw Higgs bosons to them from around them to gain that mass? Or have I totally misunderstood this process?
