GENEVA (AP) - The head of the world’s biggest atom smasher says they have discovered a new particle that is consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson known popularly as the “God particle,” which is believed to give all matter in the universe size and shape
Higgs boson’s existence was predicted decades ago to help explain how the universe works.
He spoke after two independent teams at CERN said they have both “observed” a new particle.
But the teams stopped just shy of claiming outright discovery of the Higgs boson itself that is key to our understanding of why matter has mass, which combines with gravity to give an object weight.
