Physicists believe they have identified a long-sought Higgs boson, known as the “God particle.”
The European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, says a look at all the data from 2012 shows that what they found last year was a version of what is popularly referred to as the “God particle.”
CERN physicist Joe Incandela said in a statement Thursday that “it is clear that we are dealing with a Higgs boson though we still have a long way to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is.”
The long-theorized subatomic particle would explain why matter has mass. It is considered a missing cornerstone of physics.
