OK. That sucks as a nursery rhyme. However, it is really cool science that they found the Higgs particle. Major kudos to Professor Peter Higgs for theorizing this decades ago and for his good luck in living to see the day the particle was found. Major kudos also to all of the theoretical and experimental scientists at CERN for working together to develop and run the experiments that finally found this elusive particle.
And, for comic relief, here’s a related clip from the TV comedy The Big Bang Theory.
Now, if I could just convince people to stop calling this “the god particle”!
Unlike any god, the Higgs boson exists. Unlike any god, there is nothing magical or supernatural about the Higgs boson. The Higgs boson would kick God’s ass, were God to exist and have an ass to kick. However, I should state that it would not be a fair fight. The Higgs boson is literally infinitely more massive than any god, even at a mass of just 126 GeV.
