The Higgs Boson is a subatomic particle, such as that has zero or no spin and follows the statistical description given by S. N. Bose and Einstein. The Higgs Boson theory was discovered in 1964 by a Dr. name Peter Higgs who came up with the idea of the Higgs field which keeps everything in balance and keeps electrons from flying everywhere. When the Higgs Boson theory first came out to other scientist they all thought that Mr. Higgs was crazy because they knew that gravity held everything in its place and that electrons couldn’t escape. The Higgs Boson is what gives other particles it mass because it combines them together to give them mass, but the mass isn’t just given to them they have to enter the Higgs Field. When Peter Higgs first thought of the theory everyone thought he was just saying things until he came up with an equation that solved his theory and soon every scientist started to figure out what is it, how it worked, what’s its purpose. Mr. Higgs was certain that his theory was real and that other particles got mass from the Higgs Field which is made of the Higgs Boson. The Higgs Boson was recently discovered in 2012 at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at Cern, in Switzerland. The people who was searching and found the Higgs Boson were excited that they finally proved Mr. Higgs theory as true for all of their hard work and dedication to the theory they were rewarded with the Nobel Prize in Physics. Today the Higgs Boson is known as the ‘’God Particle’’ or the ‘’Particle that makes up the universe’’ because of of what it does to other particles and the universe. The Higgs Boson gives particles their mass after they have entered the Higgs Field. The Higgs Boson does not spin like every other particle because it doesn’t ... ... middle of paper ... ...rom the Higgs field. We can also thank them for the help with the equations, the motivation to build the LHC and to help discover what we call the Higgs Boson. Now because of Peter Higgs and Francois Englert the world and many scientist can now understand where particles get their mass, why electrons don’t just move rapidly across the universe, and why we as humans can understand the real reason on how particles receive their mass. A huge thank you is give to the team that helped find the Higgs Boson and another enormous thank you to Dr. Peter Higgs and his assistant Francois Englert for thinking of a theory that no one would have believed if someone else thought of it. So because of the team in Switzerland and these two fantastic scientist we can now say the the Higgs Field and the Higgs Boson does exist and now we can understand where particles get their mass.
