How would the confirmation of the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle change our world?
Other than just confirming a theory, when the Higgs boson sub-atomic particle is discovered, if it exists, how is that going to affect new innovation? Will it lead to new advances in health or technology, including modern warfare? What are the pros and cons of this dicovery?
Not sure. I am thinking about writing a Hub about the Higgs boson sub-atomic (God particle) to learn more about it. I guess it will help explain how the universe works and where all the dark mater is, etc.
Not any time soon, in all likelihood. This is fundamental physics, and doesn't immediately change anything in the "macro-world."
Over the longer term, very possibly. Quantum physics was very "woo-woo" stuff, too, yet it has had significant repercussions in electronics, and will clearly have much bigger ones in computing.
It won't end world hunger and wars that's for sure, but it would shead some light on the facts leading up to puzzling questions many subatomic physicist have had questions of all these years ever since Einstein created the atom bomb.
It May even expand our technological awareness and mind frame to make better machines then we currently have, because knowing the true source of the god particle may have such an effect on the scientific minds of this world.
Sadly, every time we discovered something powerful we used it to destroy, control or threaten...so, I frankly look at scientists as people who are used to hurt or willingly hurt sometimes.
How many manipulations and test on the public that we don't know about? I used to be a real fan of science, now I think two times before clapping my hands at a "discovery".

Do you think CERN will find the Higgs Boson?I sometimes wonder if sub-atomic black holes might explain a lot. Maybe they emit higgs bosons... or at least virtual particles. I don't know. Here's a link about the so-called "God Particle":...

What exactly is the Higgs boson and how does it work?Yesterday, in Geneva, Switzerand, at a CERN conference, a world-wide physicists organization announced the discovery of the Higgs boson. Can someone explain what this is in layman terms and why it is so significant to the world of physics?

Higgs Boson invention - Boon or a Curse?The CERN scientists are really really close to find the HIGGS BOSON - the "GOD'S" particle . I do really hope they reach the end of this quest as soon as possible .But I was thinking , does this invention really mean , they have finally found GOD?Is...

When the mainstream media labeled or nicknamed the Higgs boson, "God particle" scientists where aghast. Peter Higgs himself (one of the 6 physicists who in 1964 proposed the mechanism that suggested the existence of such a particle) said that labeling the Higgs boson the "God...

Why did Dr Higgs dislike it when others named the Higgs Boson the "God Particle"?Dr Higgs, who theorized the Higgs Boson particle, did not want the name "God Particle" used!
