According to the latest findings the scientists seem to think our universe is inherently unstable and an ‘event shall happen at the speed of light’ and spell doom for it.
A subatomic particle discovered last year may be the long-sought Higgs boson particle. It is a manifestation of an energy field pervading the universe- the Higgs field, which is thought to explain why particles have mass.
The mass of the particle, which was uncovered at the world’s largest particle accelerator — the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva — is a key component in a calculation that portends the future of space and time.
“This calculation tells you that many tens of billions of years from now there’ll be a catastrophe,” Joseph Lykken, a theoretical physicist at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Ill., said Monday (Feb. 18) here at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
After searching for decades for proof that this field and particle existed, physicists at the LHC announced in July 2012 that it is a sure bet and it is the Higgs boson.

God’s particle as it is called in popular parlance gave us a chance to make this earth as we know it today. President Obama is hinting of’ sequestering by a meat cleaver’ may not be the ideal to save the nation’s economic health. Well, calculations of partisan politics whether in Capitol Hill or in Tunisia will not mean a straw.
Is it some poetic justice where 1% of the US has cornered all the nation’s wealth and the GOP is still filibustering with an eye for tax cuts for the super rich? Just as Higgs Boson particles gave mass to our universe and these shall be taken away. When or why may not be for us to predict. Perhaps St. Paul may prove to be right about death afterall!
Death as we know the term shall be swallowed up in victory. (1Co15:54) The Preacher of the old cried,’Vanity oh vanities!'(ack: clara moskovitz/LiveScience.com and Reuters)
