The Higgs Boson, an elementary particle in the Standard Model of particle physics is well-known around the world. However, recently the media tagged this mistakenly as the “God particle.”
The” God particle” was first spotted in the year 2012 in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a particle that interacts with various particles, such as with quarks and electrons, and provides these particles with mass.
However, the Higgs that was recently spotted was surprisingly lightweight. This fact alone raises a huge question. Since according to the best estimates, the Higgs Boson should have been heavier, this one that was spotted was not. Which leads to, “Is this the only Higgs Boson? Or there are more Higgs Bosons floating around?”
Although not a lot is known about the Higgs Boson, scientists and researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the largest atom smasher is looking into the matter at this very moment. Furthermore, as per the scientists, as the protons crash into each other, many Higgs can be formed. What’s more, is that Higgs particles could have their own Higgs.
The first ever known Higgs was found in the 1960s. A calculation about the weights for the same was found as well, but there was a hitch in the theory.
However, the new questions now have given rise to even more things. If heavier Higgs does exist, then probably, it is time to reconfigure the understanding of Standard Model of particle physics with the information about the Higgs and with the newfound information about it. There is more to what meets the eye when it comes to Boson.
Once the scientists and the researchers figure out what the matter of Higgs is and the differences in the masses, then probably the world will know what exactly is the fate of the universe.
