Best Higgs Boson Misunderstandings in Tweet Form

by Lauren Moore, published


This week physicists in Geneva "found" the Higgs Boson particle, or better known as the “God Particle". This elusive and powerful particle has been a prized potential discovery since the 1960s and will explain how mass is attributed. This is a huge deal for scientists but how much does the lay person truly know about the Higgs Boson? Not much. Here’s a sampling of 5 tweets that will make you scratch your head and think, what?
