Higgs Boson, where art thou ?

14 years of preparation. 10 billion Swiss francs. A 5-billion-pound Large Hadron Collider. A 27-km tunnel, 80 metres into the earth. Sub-atomic particles which will collide at close to the speed of light. Recreation of a bang that happened some 15 billion years ago — all this to find and arrest the Higgs Boson. ๐Ÿ˜€

Higgs Boson, it was reported, once caught and subjected to heartless interrogation, would clarify how otherwise mass-less elementary particles manage to create mass in matter. Higgs Boson would also spill the beans on the difference between the mass-less photon and the relatively massive W and Z bosons (what/whoever they are!). Higgs will probably also give in and tell us why gravity exists!! I personally feel that Newton’s lineage should press charges against Higgs: for having kept gravity a secret and causing the famous apple to fall on that famous head — Higgs has no idea how many students have been struggling for ages and cursing Newton (and his lineage), since then! ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyway, on 10 September 2008, sub-atomic particles (who apparently claimed to know and could recognise Higgs) were sent out in search of him into an LHC tunnel. But within a short 10-day period, Higgsย  Boson’s sub-atomic friends created chaos within LHC!

The court, which had been ready to meet in a month’s time for the verdict, was adjourned. The sub-atomic friends will have to be subjected to intense counselling and made to understand the need to be disciplined and find out Higgs Boson’s hiding place — psychologists say they will need time till September 2009 to achieve this!

Can you see? Can you? Can you? ๐Ÿ˜€

Higgs Boson, notoriously known as the God Particle, has been in hiding since time immemorial. The secrets it hold are believed to be in tremendous demand by the scientific world. Long, long ago, Higgs Boson apparently set off a bomb somehow: the big bang that resulted out of the explosion is believed to be the source of all (good and bad) that has been happening in the world to this day! Leaving the ‘good’ aside, this Higgs Boson is being made accountable for all the ‘bad’. Well, who knows, if the good outweighs the bad, Higgs Boson may even become another ‘big bang celebrity’!

  1. How about calling all the sub atomic particles in the court to testify or atleast on the jury….??
    Wouldn’t it be fun…??
    Just imagine electrons accusing neutrons and protons of cosying up inside a small ‘room’ called nucleus!!!
    ๐Ÿ˜‰ [He he… I’m WICKED!!]

  2. Dichkyyaaooooon!!!!!
    (sound of me shooting myself after reading a sci-fi post in this blog! yes, of all the blogs !)

    Out of context, the new snap is too good ๐Ÿ˜€ (mugathinte oru side kaanaanillallo!!! ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    ๐Ÿ˜ฏ who are all they??? Me and science is like milk and lime juice ๐Ÿ˜€ (OK, bad one!)

    @Verbivore
    I do! I do! ๐Ÿ˜€ But to write nonsense, you don’t need to be a scientist! ๐Ÿ˜›

    @Reema
    Hehe…thanks!

    Welcome to AlphabetWorld! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Hehe…thanks! Make it a habit…keep visiting!

    @Vimmuuu
    ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Why why why??? I’m not that dumb! Enikk sci-fi ezhuthiyaal enthaa?? Gonna make it a habit ๐Ÿ˜›
    And the foto….hmmm…aaakiyathaanalle…anyway, thanks for the ‘compliment’!

    @Smita
    Ummm…the dichkyaaoooo part? or the pic part?? assuming it’s the latter ๐Ÿ˜‰ , thanks !! ๐Ÿ˜€

    @Xylene
    ๐Ÿ˜€ Science is always funny!

  4. Me *heart* Science. ๐Ÿ˜€

    And yeah, i did see a teeny-weeny speck in that snap. So yippie! I found Higgie!

    So good to see you blogging again. I was away for a fortnight… Will catch up on ur other posts soon!

    Peace.

  5. @Kartz
    Yey! You found him, you found him, you found him! Let CERN know!
    Thanks!

    @Vimmuuu
    LOL!
    Smita, come back! I promise never to write sci-fi again! (Ah, there she is!)

    Smita
    ๐Ÿ˜€ (So you don’t think I look good! Hmmmm!)

  6. Ha ha of course not. I mean of course i don’t think that. But since i couldn’t understand a part of his sentence i didn’t want to take the risk. With vimal you never know what he might have written ๐Ÿ˜‰ and you obviously look very good ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. @Priya
    ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜‰

    @Smita
    Hehe…yea..true!
    And thanks! Phew! I persuaded you to say t out loud! ๐Ÿ˜€

    @Amit
    ROFL! ๐Ÿ˜†

    @Moukound
    Welcome to AlphabetWorld! ๐Ÿ™‚
    ๐Ÿ˜ฏ !!
    Hehe…good thought!

  8. i actually stared into the pic wondering if a pixel was shaded black. ๐Ÿ˜›
    tht secret shall be the annihilation of knowledge, for, there shall be no one or no means to keep it. ๐Ÿ˜‰
