Higgs bosons

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.

(https://www.space.com/41654-higgs-boson-decays-bottom-quarks.html) Physicists believe there could be a whole plethora of Higgs Bosons that are just too heavy for us to see with the current generation of particle colliders.
He predicted the existence of a field made up of Higgs bosons, where particles gain mass as they move through the field.

The LHC has spit out more Higgs bosons at these higher energies than it did during the time it ran at its lower energy.
I wonder if targeting the Higgs bosons that attach to my energy might be an easy way to lose weight, but -- more importantly -- I marvel at what this discovery reveals about the mystery of God's world.
"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. The interaction accounts for the accumulation of mass by these particles.
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.
