Only electron withstood the test of being the fundamental particle. It was shown that neutrons and protons… Read More »Higgs Boson: The God Particle

Mass of Higgs Boson predicted by Homer Simpson!!!!!

Homer Simpson seems to have discovered the equation to calculate the weight of the elusive God Particle, Higgs Boson as back as a decade Many of the episodes of the cult show “The Simpsons” are laced with mathematics. It is said the many people involved in the making of this show are mathematicians In one such episode called “The Wizard of Terrace” in 1998, Homer Simpson turns into a mathematician and is shown pondering over a equation in front of the blackboard. The equation is written as shown in the picture below.  if you put the values of all… Read More »Mass of Higgs Boson predicted by Homer Simpson!!!!!
