It is a fundamental force carrying particles of the highs field, which is responsible for providing other particles with their mass.
Higgs boson was first introduced in the mid-sixties by Peter Higgs for whom the particle is named. The particle was finally discovered on July 4 2012.
The Higgs Boson is a "Force carrier" particle that comes into play when the particle interacts with each other with a boson exchanged during these interactions.
The Higgs Boson has a mass of 125 billion electron volts. It is 130 times more massive than a proton.
The Higgs Bosson's nickname "The God Particle" was solidified upon it's discovery, namely as a result of the popular media.
CERN's primary function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needs for high-energy physics.
The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and the most powerful particle accelerator. It was introduced on September 10, 2008.
