Scientists Race to Discover God Particle: U.S. and Europe are Neck and Neck

March 16, 2009

(ChattahBox)–The U.S. Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, or Fermilab, announced over the weekend, that it’s making progress in its race to find the much sought after, “God Particle,” also called Higgs Boson particle. Brainy physicists have been searching the universe for evidence of the God Particle since British physicist Peter Higgs, theorized of its existence in 1964. Since that time, European rival, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN also entered into the race to be the first to discover evidence of the “big-bang theory.”

Fermilab said it’s zeroing in on the vast area of the universe where the God Particle may be found. Proving the existence of the Higgs Boson could provide answers to the much sought after quandary of how particles acquire mass and help to explain the so-called Standard Model of particles and mass.

CERN physicists have been furiously smashing atoms with its Large Hadron Collider to find the exact location of the God Particle. It recently went offline, when it moved its facilities and is not expected to resume smashing the Universe’s atoms until this September. Fermilab sees a window of opportunity to beat CERN and win the God Particle quest with its own gigantic atom smasher, the Tevatron Collider.
