So there’s this big
machine that’s trying to create something that is preposterously small and that
remains in existence for the tiniest time you can think of. Quicker than that. In fact, you can’t even think that
It’s called the Higgs boson
and no one knows if it exists. In
fact, there’s only a theory that it exists. Which really means it shouldn’t have a name. Things should be allowed names only if
they are real.That’s what Snort
was told by our teacher when we brought Jack to school – our ‘imaginary’
talking dog/lion/best friend.
Scientists reckon they’ve
gotten a little bit closer to finding a kind of area where they possibly think
the as yet undiscovered, theoretical particle might hypothetically be. So that’s good news.They say that if they actually find it, it
will be very exciting. They also
say that if they don’t find it then that will be very exciting too.Very clever scientists, unbeatable enthusiasm. Either way, I think we can all agree
that at least someone is excited.
