During the lifetime of the world's greatest scientist, Sir Isaac Newton, who lived in Greenwich, London, the idea that all atoms and planets were swimming in an unseen field of energy called the ETHER was very much accepted by the world's scientific community. The ETHER, it was thought (and still thought), is the field of force/energy in which our souls or spirits pass when we leave our physical bodies. The ETHER permeates outer space, and Inner Space - even between the gaps inside atoms, where electrons orbit around protons. Then Einstein came along and re-wrote the book on physics and the Ether. The Ether was not successfully theorized or proven by Einstein - but paranormal, strange and inconsistent activity of some particles triggered physicists in the 1960s to suspect that there is indeed a universal 'force field' - this notion was promoted primarily by Peter Higgs - and became known as the Higgs Field... It is named after the physicist Peter Higgs, who came up with a mathematical model called the ...

Francois Englert of Belgium and Peter Higgs of Britain won the 2013 Nobel Prize in physics (Higgs Physics) for their theory on how the most basic building blocks of the universe acquire mass, eventually forming the world we know today.

It is pretty incredible that just by rigorously studying mathematical equations, Peter Higgs can predict the existence of a particle.
Here is an excellent point about the modern professoriate from an interview of a Nobel laureate (Peter Higgs of the Higgs Boson) "Higgs noted that quantity, not quality, is the metric by which success in the sciences in measured. Unlike in 1964, when he was hired, scientists are now pressured to churn out as many papers as possible in order to retain their jobs. Had he not been nominated for the Nobel, Higgs says, he would have been fired. His scientific discovery was made possible by his era’s relatively lax publishing norms, which left him time to think, dream, and discover." I personally know of an instance in the UK where a senior professor was given the performance review target of publishing 50 papers in an academic year. Contemplation, innovation and pontification can't occur under that pressure.
My theory is subject to change as I accumulate more knowledge on the subject. Here goes: As a revision of my earlier theory, the charge of the singularity must be neutral in order to exist, as an accumulation of particles/antiparticles results in the black "hole" dissipating, which it does not do. Instead, I am now calling upon quantum gravity instead of classical gravity, or some combination of the two. According the physicist Peter Higgs, there exists a field known as the Higgs Field (not the slightest bit narcissistic) composed of Higgs Bosons. Based on a particles particular scale of interaction with this fielding the bosons, this determines a particles mass. Since some particles interact with the field more than others, some particles have a greater mass than others (and some particles have zero mass). In my thinking, the more matter that interacts with the Higgs Field, the more mass there will be, which results in the bending of space-time known as gravity. If indeed, gravtiy is a field force, then ...

'God Particle' Nobel ticks boson box for CERN Paris: The reflected glory of a Nobel Prize for the minds behind the "God particle" sent champagne corks popping at Europe's top physics lab CERN Tuesday, vindicating its landmark discovery a year ago. The Nobel Physics Prize for Britain's Peter Higgs and Belgium's Francois Englert came 15 months after CERN announced it had flushed out what appeared to be the Higgs Boson, a key building block of the Universe. CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, put flesh on the bones of a four-decade-old theory in July 2012. A Nobel for the concept's founding fathers was the icing on the cake. Pressed by reporters Tuesday on whether the Higgs Boson was finally nailed down, CERN chief Rolf Heuer grinned, saying: "I think that the Nobel committee has just confirmed that!" Minutes earlier, he and fellow CERN staff had cheered and opened champagne while watching the Nobel jury ceremony on a live-feed from Stockholm. The subatomic boson was theorised in 1964 by Hi ...

Good morning dear friends, here is your DAILY English portion of idioms: OUT OF THE LOOP: not involved in a decision-making process. You can also be in the loop. Example: THE property tax was driven through by the controversial "mini-Cabinet" while other ministers were kept out of the loop. If something KNOCKS YOUR SOCKS OFF, it deeply impresses you, you're really astonished by it in a positive way. Example: I've heard a well-known fiction prize described by a former judge as going to the book with the fewest enemies in the room. This is not that. These are books which knocked our socks off, sometimes to our surprise NOT OUT OF THE WOODS: not yet out of danger. This idiom is most often used in the negative, although you can say "out of the woods" to say out of danger. Example: Council deputy chief executive Peter Higgs said the broken pipe had been joined but they were not out of the woods yet. IN A NUTSHELL: in brief, in a few words. The Hindu Example: So what has [power steering] done for the Tata Nano? ...

THE GOD PARTICLE: Pro. Rolf Heuer, Director of the European Centre for Nuclear Physics (CERN) announced on Wednesday, July 4, 2012 that '' a new particle consistent with a Higgs Boson '' has been observed. He called it a historic milestone. Two independent teams of scientists namely the CMS and the Atlas from the Large Hadron Collider said that they have observed a new particle - a boson. Till now the Higgs Boson was only a theoretical particle. The Higgs Boson, nick-named the God particle, was first predicted in 1964 by six scientists, one of them being Peter Higgs. The Standard Model is the most widely accepted theory which can account for formation of atoms and molecules from sub-atomic particles. But it cannot explain how the particles obtain their mass. Without mass they would simply fly away with the speed of light and formation of the universe would be impossible. Higgs proposed that a field - the Higgs Field - is present throughout the universe and the particles obtain mass due to their interactio ...
Higgs Boson: SINP to raise naming issue with CERN Kolkata: The Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics (SINP) would take up with European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) chief Rolf-Dieter Heuer the case of sub-atomic particle boson, derived from an Indian scientist's name, being rendered in lower case. Heuer, director-general of the Geneva-based institute, would be on a two-day visit in Kolkata from September 3 to address an international science conference organised by the Centre for Natural Sciences and Philosophy and the Critical Issues Forum. On September 4, he would also deliver a lecture at the SINP. The discovery of a new subatomic particle, possibly the Higgs Boson, considered "a key to the cosmic riddle", in July had triggered celebrations among scientists across the world. However, the Indian scientific community had expressed its displeasure at boson being spelt in lower case while Higgs (after British physicist Peter Higgs) is spelt in the upper case. The word boson is derived from the surn ...

Congrats a lot to the novel laureates of Physics of this year_ Mr. Peter Higgs n his mate. His contribution to the discovery of Higgs Boson (also known as god particle) is praise worthy. The discovery completed the hunt for the elementary particle that provides mass to matter n thus completing the Fundamrntal Table of Elementary Particles. It was one of the most expensive projects of all time and was participated at global level. It was a tough work to build the biggest hydrogen accilerator (L.H.C.). Bt it all finished successfully and seeked a huge publicity. So now they claim that the Jigsaw has solved. Bt Thomson had also made same kind of assertion at the discovery of electron. He claimed that study of chemistry will finish in just 6 months,, bt in vain n we are struggling with chemical equations till now. I think that things r going to be more complex after this discovery.

François Englert, who along with Peter Higgs theorized Higgs Boson, talks to Euronews after receiving this year's Nobel Prize. Euronews: “The Higgs Boson has been nicknamed ‘the God particle’ by the media. What does God have to do in all of this?” Englert: “Nothing, nothing! It’s simple: I don’t think God has anything to do with it. What’s more, I don’t very well see what God has to do with anything, but that’s a separate question.”
"I have this kind of underlying incompetence." -Peter Higgs (who theorized the Higgs Boson, also known as "The God Particle" which allocates a particle's Mass in Particle Physics)
