The Higgs Boson Particle Isn't a Particle - Why the Search for Subatomic Particles is an Illusion
Physicists are a great bunch of folks. They're bright and imaginative, but just like professionals in any other field of science, when educated under the same organized system of beliefs they have the ability to cluster together and share some rather remarkable delusions.
The latest delusion is the search for the so-called Higgs Boson Particle. It's a multi-billion dollar effort that has taken decades to pursue in the U.S. using the Fermilab particle accelerator. Soon, the search for the "Higgs," as it's known, will be largely taken over by the new Large Hadron Collider powering up in Switzerland in the summer of 2009.
Sounds cool, huh? But there's a problem with all this: Higgs Boson isn't a particle!
