Physicists Await Glimpse of 'God Particle'

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Near Geneva, Switzerland scientists from the European Center for Nuclear Research are scheduled to present preliminary evidence in their search to find the Higgs boson particle, commonly known as the "God particle." Proving its existence would validate the leading theory of particle physics.

Harvard physics professor and particle theory expert Dr. Lisa Randall is the author of the new book "Knocking on Heaven’s Door: How Physics and Scientific Thinking Illuminate the Universe and the Modern World.” She talks about why the Higgs boson particle matters so much to scientists.

The big news in physics which is not gaining the attention it deserves is what Voyager recently detected.

'NASA's Voyager Hits New Region at Solar System Edge'

"Voyager is showing that what is outside is pushing back. ... Like cars piling up at a clogged freeway off-ramp, the increased intensity
of the magnetic field shows that inward pressure from interstellar space is compacting it."

This is the best evidence yet of the aether.
