The discovery of the higgs boson has led to some fascinating new science, but nothing like this, in my mind. The particle, discovered by the LHC last year, confirms that the universe likely will one day just die completely. Now, I get way more in to doomsday theories than my shrug if off attitude may imply, but this is the highest of highs. Imagine…the entire universe imploding within itself! But, you won’t notice anyways, you’ll be here and gone at the speed of light. There is a silver lining though, any events like this wouldn’t occur until long after we’re all dead!
