How could humans not find the atom for several thousand years when it was literally right in front of us?

Dude, if it were as simple as you said, then why would they need to go to colleges to get degrees in physics?

last time i checked they were struggling to get financing so im sure this is more of a pr stunt then anything
Not to be nitpicky, but, isnt carbon the basis of life?

I don't think I could care any less about this project. Hopefully they find something to justify the funding that went into designing, setting up, and executing experiments, but if someone discovered the particle that explains why matter has mass, it really wouldn't affect my day all that much...

Umm, that has to do with this...how?

Oh I see, well I'm no biologist, but what they are looking for is the basis of not just carbon, but the basis of the atom, the proton neutron and electron.

This is more basic then that.

i think the smallest particle is no more than a self-containing magnetic or electric force field (of an extremely small order...)

Seriously though; hope it's true.

I'll wait for the article in a respected peer-reviewed scientific journal.

As far as I understand, biochemically yes carbon and nitrogen are the basis of life 'as we know it'. But technically this would be a constituent particle of all atoms, hell even smaller than atoms. Smaller than protons, nuetrons, and yet even smaller than quarks (up,down,strange,charm) Perhaps even smaller than that? So by proxy, without this theoretical particle (in theory), there would be no carbon, nor no basis for life 'as we know it'. Unless of course you have a secondary explanation you would like to share with the class? /rant (not trying to call you out or anything, just my 2 cents on the matter really)

I would love for this to be true, the practical and theoretical applications of such a finidng would be great for many industries. However until i see an actual published peer work, then I wont get my hopes up or hold my breath for that matter.

I'm also waiting for the peer review, but if they have found the Higgs, that's good news for the Standard Model.

On the other hand I've been betting privately they won't find the Higgs, which would force scientists to try and explain how a theory that correctly predicted not only the electroweak unification but also the masses of the exchange bosons of the weak interaction, nevertheless seems to have the wrong mechanism for its unification process.

(that said we need to be careful since there are other Higgs Bosons that have to do with imparting mass to particles that aren't exchange bosons)

Do I hear "sub 1 nm cpus" anyone? Imagine the number of cores you could fit on a standard size die.
