You’ll have to pardon me for geeking a little here about the whole Higgs Boson thing. Don’t worry, I won’t bore you with some half-hearted attempt to reiterate what it means to humanity and how even Einstein is likely turning a little jig wherever he may be. No, nothing like that. In fact, I’m trying to get my head around the whole thing — over and over. There is a whole theory of relativity thing happening here. It’s a concept that I can wrap my head around from some angles but when I look at it again, I lose site.
Because of this, I thought I’d post a direct mention of the Open Culture blog post on this matter — which was just an introduction to something wonderful.
From the Open Culture Article:
In early July, researchers working at CERN in Europe announced they had found it — the Higgs Boson. Finally, we had proof of a theory first formulated in 1964. It was a big day. Physicists everywhere rejoiced.
