Higgs bosons

[′higz ¦bō‚sänz]
(particle physics)
Massive scalar mesons whose existence is predicted by certain unified gage theories of the weak and electromagnetic interactions; they are not eliminated by the Higgs mechanism.

The LHC has spit out more Higgs bosons at these higher energies than it did during the time it ran at its lower energy.
As other forms of energy pass through this "Higgs field," much like an aeroplane pushes through a stiff headwind, the Higgs bosons attach themselves to these particles of energy and give them mass.
Just as an electric field consists of particles called photons, the Higgs field consists of Higgs bosons woven into the vacuum.
The Report disclosed the correct structure of the Atom and how 5 Higgs Bosons responsible for mass and properties of all Elements were created from 3 Strings.
Immediately after the Big Bang - a trillionth of a second later, to be precise - according to the Model, these particles started interacting with a field called Higgs field which had permeated the universe by then, consisting of particles known as Higgs bosons.
Higgs bosons emerge from the maelstrom but only very fleetingly, for less than a trillionth of a second, before decaying.
In 1964, while walking through the Cairngorms in Scotland, Prof Higgs came up with the idea that particles - also known as bosons - derive their mass from the speed at which they pass through a field of much smaller particles, which were given the name Higgs bosons.
Higgs bosons can decay in multiple ways; in one scenario, a Higgs transforms into a top quark or a W boson, either of which would in turn immediately break up into two long-lived, detectable photons.
They have so far found none, raising the possibility that there may indeed be two Higgs bosons.
Electroweak Force holds the Photons that create the Electrons, Wangs and Higgs Bosons but its Gravity that keeps both geometrical particles of Wang and Higgs with their respective contents in place just like Gravity keeps all planets in their respective order.
Physicists will continue to ramp up the LHC, boosting it to higher energies and increasing the number of collisions to improve the chances of producing Higgs bosons.
