Even with our incredible scientific and technological advancements, we still don’t understand the composition of 96% of the universe. That’s all about to change.

Years of research, hard work and setbacks have finally paid off; the $10 billion Large Hadron Collider has finally proven it’s worth. An international team of scientists and engineers in Switzerland today announced with 99.99% certainty that a new particle has been discovered, one that could be the missing piece to the standard model of particle physics. It’s the most massive particle known to science, and it’s attributes are consistent with the elusive Higgs Boson ‘God’ Particle.

Could 2012 be the Year of the ‘God Particle’?

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva, Switzerland is the world’s largest and highest energy particle accelerator. It’s construction was an arduous process, beginning in 1998 and taking 10 years to complete. The collider lies 600 feet beneath the French and Swiss border, and has a circumference of 17 miles. The LHC was a collaborative effort, using the minds of over 10,000 scientists and engineers from over 100 countries!

The purpose of the multi-billion dollar project was to allow physicists to potentially answer some of the most fundamental, unanswered questions known to man. Scientists hope this tool will answer questions about the structure of space and time, and help us to grasp the underlying concepts behind some of the deepest laws of nature.
