Soundbytes from the interviews to Peter Higgs, Francois Englert, Carl Hagen and Gerald Guralnik, recorded at CERN on the announcement of the latest results from ATLAS and CMS on the Higgs boson searches.
CERN Press release: CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson http://cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2012/PR17.12E.html
In the video dated July 4 2012, Joe Incandela, a spokesman for Cern, announces that scientists "have observed a new particle".
"We have quite strong evidence that there's something there. Its properties are still going to take us a little bit of time.
"But we can see that it decays to two photons, for example, which tells us it's a boson, it's a particle with integer spin. And we know its mass is roughly 100 times the mass of the proton. And this is very significant. This is the most massive such particle that exists, if we confirm all of this, which I think we will," Mr Incandela, the CMS Spokesperson says.
"And this is very, very significant. It's something that may, in the end, be one of the biggest observations of any new new phenomena in our field in the last 30 or 40 years, going way back to the discovery of quarks, for example," he adds.
The origin of mass has been fiercely debated for decades

Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln describes the nature of the Higgs boson. Several large experimental groups are hot on the trail of this elusive subatomic particle which is thought to explain the origins of particle mass
So it has finally been announced (4th July 2012) that the Higgs boson has been discovered but what is it? Almost 50 years ago Peter Higgs proposed the existence of the Higgs boson and since then scientists have been looking for it! At the cost of billions of pounds, it has finally been found. Was it worth all the effort?
In this Horizon episode first broadcast on 9th January 2012, Physicists working at CERN explain what the Higgs boson is? Is it really the biggest scientific discovery for a hundred years? Prof Jim Al-Khalli presents this Horizon Special produced by the BBC.
Should Professor Peter Higgs get knighted and receive the Nobel Prize?
Is the nickname "The God Particle" misleading?
The video is exactly 4:00 - YouTube adds a second.
In which Hank takes a few minutes out of his busy vacation to talk about the Higgs boson, the Higgs field, and what they mean. We know a remarkable amount about this universe, but as of this week, we officially know a lot more. It's pretty freaking exciting, and I'm very pleased that our world is still committed to this kind of pure science and discovery.
Thanks to Henry Reich of Minute Physics for looking this video over and making sure I'm not totally full of crap.
Scientists are hopeful they're closer to solving life's greatest mysteries after discovering what's known as the 'God particle' The European Center for Nuclear Research says it's the most anticipated find in a decade. RT talks to physicist Andrey Golutvin to explore the significance.

Telescope - Meade LX200 - what can you see with a 10" from Eastchurch on the Isle of Sheppey. Kent. UK. Also see "LX200 - Observatory" for more detail of how it works...
All images by Peter Bruce Eastchurch Gap. This video sounded better with original Enya music but had to change due to copyright - shame.
Images taken with Webcam, Cannon EOS, Starlight Xpress MX7C, Meade DSI 1 & DSI 3 & Astrovid camera's.
I wish we could all "see" with our own eyes the pictures shown here but our eyes are not very sensitive at low light levels but what is importance is the fact you can see the sights with a modest set-up. And the night sky is God given and free to view - Best TV in the world...
THIS POST IS DUE TO TODAY'S NEWS (December 13, 2011) LINK: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-16158374
On November, 2007 the most complex scientific instrument ever built will be switched on. The Large Hadron Collider promises to recreate the conditions in the early universe. By revisiting the beginning of time, scientists hope to
unravel some of the deepest secrets of our Universe.
Within these first few moments the building blocks of the Universe were formed. The search for these fundamental particles has occupied scientists for decades but there remains one particle that has stubbornly refused to appear in any experiment. The Higgs Boson is so crucial to our understanding of the Universe that it has been dubbed the God particle. It explains how fundamental particles
acquire mass, or as one scientist plainly states: "It is what makes stuff stuff..."
