The world’s largest particle physics laboratory, CERN, is located near Geneva at the border between Switzerland and France. Today CERN scientists had an important announcement to make. It was about discovery of Higgs boson, also known as God particle. They were 99.999% sure that they have found God particle or Higgs boson. The existence of Higgs boson was predicted almost 40 years ago by prof. Higgs. This discovery, however, cost Stephen Hawkins $100.00 . This discovery will help with our understanding of why elementary particles have mass and the existence of diversity and life in the universe.
