    Manipulation of the higgs field would be to us, as using fire would be to fish.

    Give a man a fish and he shall eat for a day, teach him to fish and he shall eat for the rest of his life.

    Make a man a fire and he shall be warm for a day, set him on fire and he shall be warm for the rest of his life.

    That's all fish and fire bring to mind, sorry.

    What are these things? Again bailing out greedy banksters? Who have learned zero/nada/nothing from 2008 and onwards (see U.K. and LIBOR manipulation for yet another failure)? Each Euro not payed to those bastards but spend in science instead can only be an improvement.

    I also have Batman in my avatar, thus your argument is invalid.

    I am godawful at physics.

    So this shit is incredibly far over my head, as in, I totally don't have the slightest clue what this is about. All these explanations that went on in different forms over the last few days (be it interviews, comics, articles, whatever) did absolutely nothing to rectify this. As soon as I start to try to understand, my brain buggers off chasing butterflies.

    But: Back to the future II took place last week, so why don't we have hoverboards? I want them.

    Basically they discovered the smallest known particle so far and it can explain why things have mass and what causes gravity.

    Doesn't the Graviton cause gravity?

    Yes but the gravity boson hasn't been discovered yet. Higgs boson is a step towards finding it.

    It is difficult to detect graviton using collider such a LHC, because graviton's scattering cross-section is ridiculously small. You have to build a particle accelerator the size of Jupiter next to a black hole. It is simply not feasible given the current economic environment.

    You can try to detect gravity waves, the experiments are under way, but they are not affected by the discovery of Higgs boson.

    They learned plenty. For example, they learned they can still game the system and national governments are still easily-duped and manipulated, even when confronted red-handed about epic malfeasance.

    On topic: Have we discovered polarons yet?

    I'm no scientist but i'd say there are bigger obstacles to building a particle accelerator the size of Jupiter than the economics of it.

    Yeah, I mean, the Galactic Empire had no qualms about employing slave labour to build the Death Stars.

    Then again, we do have the Chinese.
