So I was curious as to how people on the boards felt about the recent Higgs-Boson breakthrough or the so-called God particle finding. I listened to Roberta's interview with Andrew on Blog Talk radio from Aug. 30th, 2011. Roberta mentioned scientist's using super colliders and this stoked my memory about the recent discovery.
How do those on the board feel about this discovery? For scientists, the discovery could be used as the beginning of a new era of particle physics, "physics beyond boundaries" as one site put it.
“These discoveries really take thousands of people working together,” Professor of Physics Greg Landsberg said. “This is really a triumph for science, not a triumph for individuals — really a triumph for all of civilization.”
I was excited to read about some of the possibilities for future research i.e. finding alternate dimensions. What say you AL forums? Does this discovery change or reinforce your beliefs? Anyone with more insight on this discovery have anything they are excited about regarding future research?
