TINIEST PARTICLE
IS BIG NEWS

Man's biggest (and most expensive) scientific endeavor
has discovered the elusive Higgs "God particle".

Finally!

(The existence of this long-predicted particle
explains, and validates, dark matter
which gives the universe mass.)

It took a massive piece of equipment and technology
to create and detect this missing particle.

The Large Hadron Collider was built underground,
under the borders of France and Switzerland,
to recreate the first moments of the "big bang."
Using 3,000 giant superconducting magnets,
protons were accelerated around a 27-kilometer ring
at near the speed of light.
As two opposing beams are smashed into one another,
vast quantities of sub-atomic particles are created.

Among the debris of thousands of billions of particles,
the Higgs particle has been found.

The collider cost $5-billion to build.
To come within the first 10th of a microsecond
of the Big Bang . . .
when time, space, matter and energy first began.

(I wonder if God is laughing!)

  1. Undoubtedly it is a great find for science ...
    I have to talk to God to try some personal issues ...
    I will ask God to think about human behavior in this regard ...
    I think having fun.
    ;)
    BESOS!

    1. I would have loved to, WOW. It's all underground.
      So enormous . . . and to find such a teeny, tiny particle too.

  5. God particle? That's man's way of mocking himself and amusing God. And they are still not there...the statement from their side was ..they "think" they have found it. Why everything has to have a reason to exist? Why everything has to scientific for the modern day man? And rest of the argument scientifically will be forward by the smartest man on my behalf ;-)

    I am not convinced with Higgs guy seriously.
