How the Higgs boson discovered

Higgs assumptions were based on the existence of some “burdening” field with which elementary particles flying through it contact. The physicist discovered the dependence of the interaction force of particles breaking through the medium on their velocity and finite mass. So, in circles of scientists was born the idea of a powerful accelerator, able to separate part of the field and arrange a kind of “Big Bang on the contrary”. The

“burdening” field predicted by the Englishman was based on the laws of quantum mechanics and consisted of a magnitude that is both wave and particle at the same time. Bosons is the name given in science to quanta of the hypothetical Higgs field.

The purpose of the experiment was the potential to break up with a powerful impact a pair consisting of the Higgs boson and a proton. As a result, the liberated proton, outside the specific medium, would have evolved into a photon of light and the sought Higgs boson.

Experiments at the first collider, built under the patronage of the European Organization for Nuclear Research, began in the early 1980s of the last century. It was not possible to find the Higgs boson then, but many positive intermediate results were encouraging and encouraging.

Experiments resumed at the Large Hadron Collider, erected in the Lake Geneva area, and lasted for over eleven years. Studies adjusted the parameters and determined the range of measurements.

Several years of waiting and the impressive costs of a scientific project have borne fruit. The official CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) press release dated 4 July 2012 issued a cautious statement on the apparent signs of the existence of a new particle relating to the Higgs theory. Despite the slight likelihood of error, most scientists are confident that the search for the Higgs boson is triumphantly complete.
