PROFESSOR BLASTOFF AFTERTHOUGHTS: QUANTUM PHYSICS
Well the most expensive game of hide and seek may finally be coming to an end. Congratulations to the scientists at CERN, who were “it”, for finding the Higgs particle. It was hiding in a 5 billion dollar particle accelerator, which is exactly where I would have hidden. So what is the Higgs boson? I hear its part of a vast field of bosons that determines a particle’s mass. This discovery means we could possibly travel at light speed! (Follow this link.) If I understand this correctly, and I got an A in my physics of the universe class so I’m confident I do, this discovery may lead us to an amazing new weight loss exercise routine called a Higgs Jig. A dance that would essentially eliminate our mass by manipulating the Higgs field around us. And if you make something weightless, you make it easier to accelerate. So lets just say for fun, if you had no mass you could essentially flick someone into outer space like a bugger, unless the bugger man would just pass right through you because they had no mass.
