today is a big day for science.
we found a new particle.
just dont get confused – it has nothing to do with god.
also, the fact that we found it doesnt mean it is any more real
than the dreams or thoughts in your head right now.
as the bbc article so aptly said, it might be “something else entirely”.
but it proves our technological ability to design experiments according to our theories,
which then find the objects we designed them to find.
if we drill down deeper, we will find more of these.
hundreds of years ago there was a man in india, and many after him, who knew all these particles.
they just didnt feel they had to build big big accelerators to prove their existence.
