LHC Higgs Boson: Judgement Day
Has the Higgs Boson happened in the future, and now it has come back in time to prevent itself? Atleast that’s what two scientists are proposing today. The article, at the NYTimes, summarizes a series of theories proposed by Dr. Holger Bech Nielson and Masao Ninomiya, that propose the idea that maybe all the bad luck CERN has been having in officially booting up the Large Hadron Collider are actually being caused by the Higgs Boson itself. That is to say that the outcome of the Collider is so fundamental, and potentially destructive, to the nature of the universe that it has gone back in time to prevent itself from happening. Aside from the many malfunctions, CERN’s other delays were caused by an unsolved sabotage back in the fall, and a mysterious vaporizing of two magnets during a test. Add to that the arrest of a particle physicist, who was working on one of the Collider experiments, on suspicion of conspiracy with a North African wing of Al Qaeda. It’s definitely food for thought, and I highly suggest that any other science hobbyists go read the entire article here.
