God is in the Particle!

Racing to find God? Matter or Anti-matter!

Before I read about the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) on the news couple of years ago, I always thought that God exists in the details. They taught us that in art schools. And apparently that God doesn't only exist in the details but also in the particle according to the LHC.

The race between the US and the EU is now the most procurement scientific research in the history of mankind, so far. Both are spending billions of dollars and euros and packing highly qualified scientists, each with their own LHC and gigantic machines deep down the earth to find the "God particle"!

The EU LHC have seen several candidates for the heaviest elementary particle known to science recently. If this was confirmed, it would be a first for the EU; so far, the top quark particle has only been generated by the US. This discovery could assist physicists in the hunt for the elusive Higgs boson, or "God particle".

The Higgs boson is the only Standard Model particle that hasn't been observed and is thought to be the mediator of mass. Such experiments using the LHC would help explain the origins of mass in the universe and how the universe was formed either to confirm the Supernova theory or to eradicate it.

'The LHC is a massive machine under earth between the French-Swiss borders. It produces 2 beams of energy in different direction in circular forms, each beam can travel as fast as 11.000 times every second. When both beams meet, they produce VERY high amounts of energy and data. Such data can be used to unlock secrets of the universe and how the matter was formed'.
