Origin of Mass for Higgs
Date: Summer 2012
Since the Higgs field gives other particles mass, what gives the Higgs boson its mass?
This is a very good question. Unfortunately, no one knows for now.
What is so exciting about the July 4, 2012 announcement of a candidate Higgs being discovered is that the model is appearing to become fleshed out.
Please notice the date. There are mountains of data to go through before we have this tiny part of the puzzle fitted in. We need people like you as investigators to help with fresh ideas and limitless curiosity so we fit more pieces into the Universe puzzle.
