The recent discovery on a particle which is believed to be the Higgs Boson, is quite fascinating. I am not entirely sure that it has been confirmed that it is the particle that they were looking for, but the Higgs Boson, or the God particle as it is commonly referred to by the media could provide us with valuable information on both the formation and future of the universe. I do not like the “God Particle” tag that it has been given. Below is an interesting video explaining the Higgs Boson.
With all new knowledge, there seems to also be risks. Could this new discovery be used for great things, such as space exploration, or for bad things, like weapons of even greater mass destruction. Below is a video from an australian tv show with Dr Karl which questions the future possibilities of this scientific discovery.
