10 years of ‘god particle’: The Birth Story of Particle Physics

For the third time since 2010, the LHC was successfully restarted for the first time on July 5, 2022, 10 years after it was used to discover the elusive ‘God particle or Higgs Boson. CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) says the organization has discovered three exotic particles since then. 

An interaction between high-energy particle beams generated it inside the collider. In the third run, the collisions achieved record energy of 13.6 trillion electron volts (TeV). It will continue operating for four years, according to CERN. Higgs Boson’s research could provide scientists with insights into the secrets of the universe, including dark matter.

We weren’t quite sure of whether the Higgs boson was the Higgs boson when it was discovered in 2012, she remembered.

The particle is very, very close to being the Higgs Boson, which is required in the so-called Standard Model of Particle Physics, which we were able to confirm in the past 10 years, the scientists wrote. The Standard Model of Particle Physics, one of the most successful theories to date, predicted Higgs Boson. It described the known 17 fundamental particles or building blocks of the universe and how they interact.  The god particle is linked with the Higgs field, which gives mass to fundamental particles such as electrons and quarks

The concept of “mass” for tiny, uncuttable particles is an odd thing if you think about it, We would not be here to discuss this issue if electrons had zero mass, he said. Without atoms, the early universe would not have produced atoms, and we would never have created an atom, he said.

Researchers at CERN learned how the ‘god particle’ dies or decays over the last decade. The Higgs Boson has a short lifespan. During particle collisions, it only sticks around for 1.6 x 10-22 seconds after it is created, CERN said.We are going to be on the lookout for a wide range of new phenomena: force-carrying particles, mini black holes, exotic cousins of the Higgs Boson, heavy neutral leptons, supersymmetry particles, dark matter, dark pions, and others
