Poll: Will Discovery of the ‘God Particle’ Lead to Changes in Our Lives?

What is the Higgs boson?

The Geneva lab where the Web was born has produced another revelation—signs of the so-called “God Particle.”  Scientists at CERN loudly applauded the news. “We have reached a milestone in our understanding of nature,” said lab director general Rolf Heuer. “The discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs boson opens the way to more detailed studies, requiring larger statistics, which will pin down the new particle’s properties, and is likely to shed light on other mysteries of our universe.” It took a while for the Web to take hold.  Will the God Particle change the way we live as well?
