The Higgs boson is perhaps better known by its  nickname: the "God particle." Discovery of God Particle is a major breakthrough in the field of nuclea

Particle tracks from a proton-proton collision (also called an event) in the ATLAS experiment at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Events like this are a possible sign of the Higgs particle, though many events must be analyzed together to say with confidence the signal came from the elusive particle.
