The world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator operated by CERN had a simple task – to find God. Well, the God Particle anyway (a.k.a The Higgs Boson).

    And now the particle which might explain how things get mass has been cornered and caught in action at the LHC. In this post, I don’t want to talk about what is the Higgs Boson, show you a cartoon,
