I God particle Higgs Boson

    Can anyone shed a bit of light on what a Higgs Boson is, how it was discovered and what its discovery implies for physics ?

    What research have you done so far? What have you found out?

    I have not really got much of an idea. Most of the articles have too much usage of technical words. I need to know almost every theory on particle physics to get to understand it. So I thought maybe someone over here can cut out the too much adavanced terminology. Also, I cant understand what is meant by a Higgs field and what does zero spin mean. Moreover, how it can explain symmetry breaking and all. Plz elucidate.

    You can't truly understand them without using technical terms and mathematics. Start from a lower level and work your way up until you can understand them properly.

    Otherwise read the wiki to get the 10k ft view.
