By Leon M. Lederman
Two major physicists talk about the significance of the Higgs Boson, the way forward for particle physics, and the mysteries of the universe but to be unraveled.
On July four, 2012, the long-sought Higgs Boson--aka "the God Particle"--was came across on the world's biggest particle accelerator, the LHC, in Geneva, Switzerland. On March 14, 2013, physicists at CERN proven it. This elusive subatomic particle kinds a box that permeates the full universe, growing the loads of the easy debris which are the elemental development blocks of every little thing within the recognized world--from viruses to elephants, from atoms to quasars.
beginning the place Nobel Laureate Leon Lederman's bestseller The God Particle left off, this incisive new booklet explains what is subsequent. Lederman and Hill talk about key questions that might occupy physicists for years to come:
* Why have been scientists confident that whatever just like the "God Particle" needed to exist?
* What new debris, forces, and legislation of physics lie past the "God Particle"?
* What strong new accelerators are actually wanted for the U.S. to recapture a management function in technology and to arrive "beyond the God Particle," resembling Fermilab's deliberate Project-X and the Muon Collider?
utilizing considerate, witty, daily language, the authors exhibit how all of those exciting questions are top scientists ever deeper into the cloth of nature. Readers of The God Particle will now not are looking to leave out this crucial sequel.
