The discussion on the Higgs Boson, a particle that gives mass to other particles or more famously known as “god particle” has created a lot of debate and dogma since its inception. But now, some researchers are seriously casting doubt over the notion that the Higgs Boson was actually found.
A new research revealed that the particle found by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) might not be the Higgs Boson. According to physicists, CERN experiments had indeed discovered a particle that was unique and it had never been seen before. But an international research team also stated that there was not any substantial evidence that the particle was a Higgs Boson.
Mads Toudal Frandsen, associate professor at the Center for Cosmology and Particle Physics Phenomenology, explained that Higgs particle is a part of the Standard Model in physics. It was true that it could give details about data and particle but there are some other explanations that are capable of providing that data from other particles, Frandsen said. He was of the view that the particle that CERN experiments had discovered last year might be called a techni-higgs particle, as it has some features of Higgs particle but it might not be right to claim it as a Higgs Particle.
More conclusive data is needed from CERN to prove the actual authenticity of this dilemma.
