God Particle

The most-hotly pursued question in physics today is what determines mass in an object. Scientists at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, as well as at Fermilab in Illinois, are hoping to find what they call the "Higgs Boson", also known as God Particle. Higgs, they believe, is a particle, or set of particles, that might give others mass. This “God particle” would explain the eternal question, “Why is there something rather than nothing?” Till date Higgs Boson is the single missing piece of the Standard Model yet to be spotted. Electromagnetism describes how particles interact with photons, tiny packets of electromagnetic radiation. The strong force binds the elements of atomic nuclei together, and the weak force governs radioactivity and hydrogen fusion. More...

The Big Bang

  • The universe is 13.7 billion years old.
  • In 1951, the Catholic Church officially pronounced the big bang model to be in accordance with the Bible.
  • Scientists believe that the first stars in the universe arose only about 400 million years after the Big Bang.
  • The universe was initially significantly smaller than even a pore on our skin.
  • We see the Sun not as it is now, but how it was eight minutes ago. (The Sun is eight light minutes away from the Earth). We see the nearby stars as they were several years ago. We see Andromeda, the nearest spiral galaxy as it was roughly 2.5 million years ago.
  • The most distant objects that we see are the oldest objects that we can directly detect.
