I prefer to call it The Force — a particle that "surrounds us and penetrates us" binding the galaxy together — but Czech physicist Luboš Motl makes a good case as to why the Higgs boson should be called the God Particle.
After much excitement, the Force has not been found. But don't be sad, my fellow nerds. Scientists may not have found evidence of the Higgs boson yet, but they have discovered "tantalising hints" that may indicate its presence.
If confirmed next week, this will be the biggest news in the history of physics since the birth of the Theory of Relativity: CERN scientists may have already found evidence of the existence of the elusive Higgs boson. THE FORCE, dudes:
