Now that the Higgs boson has been found, what the heck are we going to do with it? Scientists have confirmed that particles gain mass by passing through the Higgs field and could have startling implications.

Just think about the electron that was discovered in 1897. Now, our entire lives are run by electronics and according to Ray Kurzweil, so will our bodies by the year 2046 when the Singularity takes over.  Nikola Tesla is counting by three’s in his grave!

Happy birthday, Niko! (July 10, 1856)

FalloutGirl loves to write about science in the 19th century mostly because so much creativity was poured into the field and so many great minds contributed their knowledge in an effort to understand and change the world.  I’m now imagining someone called HiggsGirl one hundred years from now, a girl who’s nostalgic for the scientific era that is today, when the Higgs boson was just discovered and great minds were trying to figure out how it can be applied to better humanity and its implications for war.

I heart the future.
