Cern announces discovery of Higgs boson 'God particle'. It has taken nearly 50 years and cost Now, at last, the Higgs boson particle has been found - and a new chapter in our understanding of the universe can begin.
This track is an example of simulated data modelled for the ATLAS detector on the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. The Higgs boson is produced in the collision of two protons at 14 TeV and quickly decays into four muons, a type of heavy electron.
We still haven't found the Higgs boson, the hypothetical particle that explains why other particles possess mass. But that might not be the only cosmic mystery the Higgs can solve. It could also explain how the universe got its shape.

First-Ever Observation of Higgs Boson Decay Opens New Doors for Particle Physics
1st-Ever Evidence of Higgs Boson Decay Opens New Doors for Particle Physics: Calculations fr well-established theory predicts that Higgs bosons decay into pairs of the following particles in the following percentages: bottom quarks (58 %), W bosons (21 %), Z bosons (6 %), tau leptons (2.6 %) and photons (0.2 %). More exotic configurations make up the remainder. One of the key results of today’s announcement was to verify that the prediction was correct for bottom quarks.
