To find the Higgs Boson particle, the scientists tried to create the particle by colliding the protons together inside the Large Hadron Collider (LHS) at a speed close to the speed of the light. The fragments released by the collision, immediately deteriorate into smaller and stable sub-atomic particles. The Higgs particle decays into lighter particles, and the process follows a particular number of paths.
Recently, the scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider, said that they have discovered a particle that behaves in a similar way as the Higgs Boson particle behaves. This result was declared by Rolf Heuer, director-general of Cern, the home of the Large Hadron Collider. He said that the discovery will shed light on other mysteries of the universe and added: 'We have reached a milestone in our understanding of nature,' as reported in Dailymail.
The conformation of the existence of the Higgs Boson particle is not the end but the beginning of a new and more enlightened phase in particle physics. But the discovery still needs a high degree of certainity.
