Since the discovery of the ( mysterious Higgs Boson in 2012, a discovery that went on to win the 2013 Nobel Prize, scientists have been trying to decode it to study the secrets of space and time.

Many theories aiming to patch the holes in the standard model predict additional Higgs bosons, and scientists are now searching for those heavier Higgs cousins.

In fact, when Gianotti first saw the readouts proving the Higgs boson had been found, she jumped up and cried, "My God!" She regained her composure in time for the press conference, where she called out, "Thanks, nature!" And that's a tragedy.
One theory that could be tested suggests that the Higgs boson can give birth to particles of dark matter.
It had proved elusive until scientists finally found what they believe is the Higgs Boson at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva in 2012.

Immediately after the Big Bang - a trillionth of a second later, to be precise - according to the Model, these particles started interacting with a field called Higgs field which had permeated the universe by then, consisting of particles known as Higgs bosons. The interaction accounts for the accumulation of mass by these particles.
Higgs believes particles react with a field of so-called bosons running through the universe and create their particular mass.
