What is the Higgs Boson? Will it destroy the universe? By:Gage Minke Tates Creek High School My project is about the Higgs Boson. The Higgs Boson is a particle in physics that is referred to as the God Particle. The higgs boson is a theory that gives mass to elementary particles. The Higgs boson is a particle that brought scientists to their knees. The Higgs boson does not "explain" physics Bosons are a type of subatomic particle which can occupy the same point in space as each other unlike matter particles, such as electrons, which can never overlap. The Higgs Boson was first suspected in 1960’s. The Higgs Boson is named Higgs after the Scottish theoretical physicist Peter Higgs who was one of the first to predict that this…show more content…
If the particles continue to gain energy/mass, then they will not be able to move at the speed of light. But then again if the field did not exist then universe would literally fall apart. If the Higgs field did not exist, particles would not have the mass required to attract one another, and would float around freely at light speed. Also, gravity would not exist because mass would not be there to attract other mass. The Earth has mass. It is the Earth's mass that causes it to have gravity, and so in order to not have gravity the Earth would have to not have mass But if the Earth didn't have mass, it wouldn't be there…show more content…
The answer to this question is possibly. With every scientific discovery there is always a possibility that the information can be used for the wrong reasons. Thus, leading to a tragic crisis, in this case; ending the world. Like I stated before, mass required to attract one another, and would float around freely at light speed causing there to be no gravity allowing all objects to float off the Earth’s surface. The lack of gravity would send every organism into space, where there isn’t oxygen. Leaving every organism to die, thus further showing that without the Higgs Field nothing could survive. In conclusion, the Higgs Boson and Higgs Field play a major role in ensuring every organisms survival. These discoveries will furthermore always affect every future discovery. Overall, the Higgs Boson and Higgs Field play a role in ensuring survival, advancing scientific research and have both positive/negative effects. For more information about the discoveries,visit
