Higgs Boson: The new, potential destroyer of our planet

  • natashamali by natashamali

    So I've seen videos and read articles about the Higgs Boson and a few things are spinning in my head right now.... If it does actually gain enough energy, how can it erase life on Earth??! I'm just not convinced that a tiny cluster of particles can end our lives as we know it......

    Hi natashamali and welcome to MWP.

    It looks like you have seen some videos on Youtube and I have no idea what articles you've read, but these claims sound absolutely silly and completely untrue. Try reading up on wikipedia. That will give you a lot more accurate information. So, to summarize : NO, the Higgs Boson will not end life on Earth !
