malia tate: epitome of discretion

The Large Hadron Collider has analyzed enough data to eliminate the Higgs Boson with 95% confidence.
Looks like someone may owe Hawking a beer …
So is this a step toward weightlessness if the Higgs Boson (assuming I remember how it was explained to me correctly) is responsible for determining the mass of an object? Or masslessness? Is that even a thing or would our bodies just diffuse into the air? So many questions, but they all depend on whether or not I understood it all correctly…
nanodash I feel like you might be able to answer these questions. I’m curious as well.
It’s nice to be thought of
First off, that article is more than 2 years old. The Higgs Boson was only confirmed on the 4th July 2012. CERN were having issues finding it right before they…did.
The most recent news I’ve seen is showing the effects of the Higgs Boson on another boson; The W Boson.
Along with the Z boson, the W boson explains the weak nuclear force. It’s one of the four fundamental forces of the universe, along with gravity, electromagnetism and the strong force. This weak force governs radioactivity and nuclear fusion.
ATLAS has reported seeing these bosons scatter off each other at a rate that’s only possible if the Higgs Boson is involved.
But what if you could eliminate it as in get rid of it. Well then subatomic particles would have no mass. So ordinary particles would have no mass. Then gravity would have no effect on you, and you could pass light speed. But don’t go above Warp 10 or you turn into some kind of lizard…thing
Very lizard thing!!!!1
Okay, I’m still having trouble understanding how these particles function in a practical sense. I know there’s many of them, but is there any ways of gaining a better understanding of subatomic particle behavior in layman’s terms?
Another question I have relate to their detection. For instance, how is the energy of the collision related to the different detectable patterns? The article mentioned that the Boson particle could be hidden within a particular energy level, that’s why I ask.
I understand what they explain in terms of our current physics model, but what possible practical applications will the understanding of them bring, if any?
Feel free do dump some knowledge on me that is unrelated to the questions, I’m always okay with a good science read!

…I wanna run at light speed! But for real, to be able to switch off gravity every now and then sounds like it could be super fun, if potentially super dangerous.

wtf is an acronym
you’re either obsessed with coffee or you can’t stand it there is no in between
…I enjoy a cup every now and again but am not obsessed with it. Your premise is invalid.
This is fucked up
This fucked me up
Where’d the hair go???????????????
Watch closely, it’s pulling through a hole in the crown of the skull piece.
I dearly wish that people would view their bodies as they view flowers…
Skin patches? Birthmarks?
Scars? Stretch marks?
Freckles? Moles? Acne scars?
Missing a few pieces?
handsome as ever~
Feel like you just look weird?
you’re fantastic looking~
bless you joker
you guys missed the point of this monologue. the Joker is a psychotic mass-murderer that repeatedly attempts to blow up or generally destroy the city of Gotham root and branch. He’s saying that he won’t really be punished for THOSE crimes, but TAX EVASION (not paying your shake-down money to the government) WILL get him thrown away for life without a chance of getting out. Essentially, I can murder all the people I want but the second I try to cheat the government outta their shake-down money they’ll take me down.
This REEKS of political undertones. As does a TON of media that people are too thick to realize. Writers put this sorta thing into just about everything they do, but they do it low-key enough that it can’t be taken as treasonous only fictional and comical.
This also reminds me a Al Capone. The only time he was incarcerated for more than a week was due to tax evasion. Everyone knew he was responsible for tons of felonies, but he kept everything so well managed that none of the crimes he committed (or had others commit) could be tied to him. At the end of it all, his deeds were well known, but the only reason he went to jail was tax evasion.
lesson learned, pay your taxes
oh my god
You’d think they’d be cased in something rumble-proof.
