This is as big as the, well, big bang theory: Scientists working at the world's largest atom smasher say they have enough evidence of the long-sought-after Higgs boson.

To the layman, the Higgs boson is the "God particle" and a key puzzle piece in the scientific explanation of the origin of the universe. Physicists around the globe—and perhaps elsewhere, given the size of the universe—have invested billions of dollars in research and have been hunting for the Higgs boson for decades.

Even though they never wanted to call it the "God particle" it's not even the god particle. There are more interesting particles out there that still need to be found.

Too bad they didn't build the accelerator in the US. I think it was Clinton's fault.

However, kudos for finally finding the Higgs. Good day for science.
