We finally learned how the glue that holds together the expanding universe exists because it has left its mark on the most powerful particle accelerator in the world, the LHC (Large Hadron Collider), a 27 km long underground tunnel, which passes near the Lake Geneva and the Jura mountain, which began to hurl protons furiously against each other from 2008 and after 20 years of construction and 10 billion euros of expenditure.
With the discovery of the Higgs boson will complete the summary of the 17 elementary particles that compose matter known to us. The last missing piece was finally found. But for physicists gathered at CERN today's announcement also marks the opening of a new chapter. From tomorrow, the tools of physics most powerful in the world, will be put back in motion to better define the details still ambiguous trace of the Higgs boson.
I wonder if the Higgs boson is "some other form of matter, distributed almost evenly throughout the Universe that we have not discovered yet and that could make up the average density of the Universe up to the critical value which is required to halt his expansion "(Stephen.W.Hawking - A brief history of time - 1988)
I wonder if and how this discovery will affect the postulates of quantum mechanics;
And if, from the high-energy collisions, which are essential for generating mass, can generate a singularity that acquiring mass from the collision itself, can acquire too much gravity that to trap all the energy itself and then give birth to a black hole!
