Higgs the mass killer: in defense of Stephen Hawking

Stephen Hawking was brought to deep financial troubles when he lost $100 against TRF guest blogger Gordon Kane after the two men have agreed on a bet that the Higgs boson would or wouldn't ever be discovered, or something like that.

Will the ‘God Particle’ destroy our universe?

The discovery of the Higgs boson back in 2012 by the dedicated scientists at the Large Hadron Collider was rightfully celebrated as a landmark accomplishment for physics. Some scientists even went so far as to say the discovery was the savior of the Standard ... [Published Examiner.com - Sep 11 2014]

Stephen Hawking Claims 'God Particle' May Destroy the Universe

Stephen Hawking, in the preface of a new book Starmus, warns that the "God particle" (Higgs boson) would destroy the universe.

10 September 2008: the Large Hadron Collider is switched on for the first time

On this day in 2008, a lot of people woke up and ate their cornflakes under a cloud of worry. They were concerned that later in the day, the earth would be swallowed up into a black hole created accidentally by mad scientists in Switzerland, and we would ... [Published Money Week - Sep 10 2014]

Radical New Theory Could Kill the Multiverse Hypothesis

Though galaxies look larger than atoms and elephants appear to outweigh ants, some physicists have begun to suspect that size differences are illusory. Perhaps the fundamental description of the universe does not include the concepts of “mass” and “length,” ... [Published Wired News - Aug 25 2014]

Quotes

"leptons’ collectively They also required two jets (sprays of strongly interacting particles) and some apparent missing energy. We’ve known for years that maybe you could find supersymmetry with this kind of sieving. The jets and leptons could come from the production of supersymmetric particles which decay into them and a supersymmetric dark matter particle. So if you find too many of these type of collisions compared to Standard Model predictions, it could be duedue to supersymmetric particle production. /script>The ‘missing energy’ under the supersymmetry hypothesis would be duedue to a supersymmetric dark matter particle that does not interact with the detector, and steals off momentum and energy from the collision. Some ordinary Standard Model type physics can produce collisions that pass through the sieve: for example top, anti-top production. But top anti-top production will give electron anti-muon production with the same probability as electron anti-electron production. So, to account for the dominant background (ie ordinary collisions that we are less interested in but that get through the sieve still), the experiment does something clever: they subtract off the electron anti-muon collisions from the electron anti-electron collisions./script>The picture below shows the number of collisions that passed through the sieve depending upon the invariant mass of the lepton pair. The big peak is expected and is due to production of a Z-boson. But toward the left-hand side of the plot, you can see that there are a few too many observed events with low invariant masses, compared to the “background” prediction. We’ve interpreted this excess with our supersymmetric particle production hypothesis."
...Electrons and muons are called ` "leptons’ collectively They also required two jets (sprays of strongly interacting particles) and some apparent missing energy. We’ve known for years that maybe you could find supersymmetry with this kind of sieving. The jets and leptons could come from the production of supersymmetric particles which decay into them and a supersymmetric dark matter particle. So if you find too many of these type of collisions compared to Standard Model predictions, it could be duedue to supersymmetric particle production."
...According to The Australian, the preface reads in part: "The Higgs potential has the worrisome feature that it might become metastable at energies above 100 [billion] gigaelectronvolts (GeV). This could mean that the universe could undergo catastrophic vacuum decay, with a bubble of the true vacuum expanding at the speed of light. This could happen at any time and we wouldn't see it coming."
...at the SETI Institute, he also said that, on the other hand, it is possible that may have already happened and the bubble may be on its way. "And you won't know because it's going at the speed of light so there's not going to be any warning" he added
