The model of the universe remains one of the biggest scientific mysteries in the world. If we uncover it fully, it could change the future of humanity. In fact, over the last several decades, physicians have worked a day in and day out to model the workings of the universe and developed the Standard Model. According to Smithsonian Mag, “this model describes four basic interactions of matter, known as the fundamental forces. Two are familiar in everyday life: the gravitational force and the electromagnetic force. The other two, however, only exert their influence inside the nuclei of atoms: the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force.” Get that?
They’re first exploring the different makeup of the universe, which is four basic interactions of matter. In the 1960s, Peter Higgs described the quantum field and its role in the Standard Model. Furthermore, “according to the laws of quantum mechanics, all such fundamental fields should have an associated particle, which came to be known as the Higgs boson. Decades later, in 2012, two teams using the Large Hadron Collider at CERN to conduct particle collisions reported the detection of a particle with the predicted mass of the Higgs boson, providing substantial evidence for the existence of the Higgs field and Higgs boson.” This was a breakthrough for scientists to further understand the universe in which we live (Smithsonian Mag).
