CERN to Unveil New Evidence for "God Particle"

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

In December, scientists from the CERN lab in Switzerland announced that they had found "hints" about the existence of Higgs Boson particle, otherwise known as the "God particle." On Wednesday, CERN will announce the latest evidence.

The God particle is key to explaining why matter has mass, an understanding that would explain how subatomic particles, and thus our universe, formed in the first place. In December, scientists from CERN announced that they had found "hints" of the particle's existence. This week, we'll likely gain new insight into the creation of humans, and the world we inhabit. Dr. Michio Kaku is a theoretical physicist and author of the New York Times bestseller "Physics of the Future."
