What is Higgs Boson?
July 4, 2012 A lot of buzz happened about the fact that scientists found a particle that behaved the way they expect Higgs Boson to behave. But in order to make sense of thiss entire thing we first need to know what is Higgs Boson.
top The standard model, was developed in the early 1970s and according to it our entire universe is made of 12 different matter particles and four forces.
Quarks make up protons and neutrons, while members of the lepton family include the electron and the electron neutrino, its neutrally charged counterpart Leptons e, , Quarks u, c, t d, s, b 9 Photon Gluons Higgs Boson
Unfortunately, the model still has another missing piece - the Higgs boson. Let's find out more about it.
Electromagnetic fields, for instance, depend on the photon to transit electromagnetic force to matter. Physicists think that Higgs boson might have a similar function, but transferring mass itself.
Can't matter just inherently have mass without the Higgs boson confusing things up?
