In the preface to a new book, Starmus, acclaimed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking writes that the so-called “God particle” could become
unstable and cause a “catastrophic vacuum decay” that would lead to the collapse of time and space, The Sunday Times reports.
“The Higgs potential has the worrisome feature that it might become metastable at energies above 100bn gigaelectronvolts,” Hawking writes. “This
could mean that the universe could undergo catastrophic vacuum decay, with a bubble of the true vacuum expanding at the speed of light.”
“This could happen at any time and we wouldn’t see it coming.”
As if we didn’t have enough to worry about! Wars, Ebola, GMO,mouth blisters, killer storms and now a catastrophic vacuum decay….sheesh, I’m
fracking at my wits end
Could someone please put in layman’s terms exactly what the “God Particle” is and which God are we referencing here?
Or does this vacuum decay only apply to the Christian concept of GOD…you can see my confusion eh? Do Jew’s get a “get out of jail free
