CERN Ten years ago, scientists discovered the Higgs Boson particle. This helped to make sense of our universe

by using the Large Hadron Collider. In 2018, they did it again, unlocking new insights into protons. With a new set of

questions, they plan on restarting the particle accelerator this month in order to better understand cosmic mysteries

like dark matter. NPR's Dr. Sarah Demers, Yale University's physics professor, says that "this particle has

answered some of our questions and given many more." Scientists at CERN spun and crashed particles near the

speed light to discover the Higgs Boson particle. The Large Hadron Collider, the largest and most powerful particle

accelerator in the world, was used to accomplish this feat. Although this particle has been known to exist

since 1964, it was not discovered until nearly 50 years later. Scientists believe that the Higgs field formed 10

billionths of a second after Big Bang. Without it, stars, planets, and life wouldn't have been possible. The discovery

of the Higgs Boson was a significant milestone in fundamental physics. Dr. Francois Eglert and Dr. Peter Higgs
