God Particle...
When I was studying theoretical physics at university the Higgs Boson, or 'God Particle', was a hot topic. Did it exist? Could ever be found? What would its energy/mass be? Now it looks like someone might have found some strong evidence for it and even know it's energy/mass too. Cool. The Standard Model (diagram below) needs the Higgs Boson to give the universe mass - something the other 16 fundamental particles and interactions that have been found so far just can't do. Poor loves, they do try.
