Higgs Boson Flowchart
Actually, I do understand the Higgs Boson. Sorta. Kinda. I've been reading Brian Greene's "The Fabric of the Cosmos", and it gives an excellent explanation of this long-sought-after particle that is essential to the Quantum Physics theories.
And no, despite the hoopla of a couple weeks ago, they have not yet found the Higgs Boson. They found evidence of a particle that had Boson-like attributes. That's a long way from saying they found it.
