NPR's All Things Considered interviews Dick Teresi, the man credited with naming the higgs-boson Particle the "God Particle."
|Higgs boson |
A hypothetical, massive subatomic particle with zero electric charge. The Higgs boson is postulated to interact with other particles in such a way as to impart mass to them. It is predicted by the standard model, but has yet to be isolated experimentally. The Higgs boson is named after its discoverer, British theoretical physicist Peter Ware Higgs (born 1929).
