Does Higgs Boson rule out spacetime curvature?

  1. Jul 4, 2012 #1
    Hi there:

    I've learnt that there's no such thing as gravity, just the curvature of spacetime that makes objects that are close to each other act like it existed.

    Does Higgs Bossom discovery tell us that there is a gravity force after all?

    Welcome to PF,

    No. Why do you think that it would?

    After I submitted the question I realized that the question with the Higgs Boson was only talking about the property of mass, and it had nothing to do with the spacetme curvature and gravity.
    I was reading a theory that said that mass was only a mass efect and that what curved the spacetime ocean was closed volumes.
    Well, never mind the question.
