The Higgs Boson particle may not exist after all, according to researchers. It was reported in 2013 that scientists in Denmark had successfully detected the Higgs particle in the CERN accelerator, which had previously been called the Large Hardon Collider. Before any observation, the Higgs Boson particle was only a hypothetical prediction and did not have any logical evidence.
It was just recently that a new research report has brought to light the prospect of miscalculated information regarding the original observations, and the LHC might have, in fact, brought about a different kind of subatomic particle and not the assumed Higgs Boson.
The CERN information was commonly taken as proof that the particle was the Higgs Boson. It is correct that the Higgs particle could explicate the figures but there might be other justifications as well. The information could have been gotten from other particles, according to noted physicist Mads Frandsen, who was in charge of the project.
Dr. Frandsen was a participant of the research group, who spoke up about the chance of there being an error in the LHC information. The data was reported in a science journal put out by the University of Southern Denmark. Frandsen and his crew think the information could denote the long sought after Higgs Boson particle, but also consider the idea that another item could have been created known as a Tech Higgs particle.
The scientist explained that a Tech Higgs particle was not a fundamental particle, but instead, it had so-called techni-quarks, which are thought to be straightforward. Such particles can join together in various different ways to form Tech Higgs particles, while other blends might create dark matter.
It has been known for years that researchers have searched for a hypothetical sub-particle that has been known as the Higgs Boson particle. This particle was described as giving mass to every object. In order to find the particle, scientists had to use accelerators in order to crash atoms against each other while examining their strewn debris. In 2013, it was reported around the world that the scientists at CERN had discovered that exact thing.
The misperception was seemingly caused due to the discovery of the Tech Higgs particle. Some researchers are even saying that more research will have to be done to see if the Higgs Boson even actually exists. It was theorized that the Higgs particle was a subatomic particle that gave atoms their mass. Since the middle 1960s, physicists have fought to prove the particle exists. Even though they are able to see the effects of the particle, they have not yet singled it out from any atom. There has not been anyone who has actually seen the particle itself.
The Higgs Boson particle earned the nickname “the god particle.” Therefore, it is understandable why it received extreme criticism from the world of science. The particle was said to be responsible for all mass in the entire universe. Although its detection or attempted surveillance brought exhilaration to the science realm, the detection that it might not even exist poses equivalent theoretical and scientific problems.
