"Could the God Particle Wipe Out the Universe?" That is, the Higgs Boson
Jack Daniel asks “Could the God Particle Wipe Out the Universe?” in another Strange Mysteries video.
The video concerns the Higgs, Boson, an elementary particle which is theoretically capable of causing “vacuum decay” which spreads through the Universe at the speed of light. It would cause existence to fail. But since space expands faster than the speed of light, it might never reach us even if it formed.
The videos is in SM’s usual 4-part format. (See earlier film March 21, 2014 about Higgs.)
