B God particle

  1. Mar 23, 2016 #1
    This has been fascinating me for a while.I read in a book that the god particle suddenly exploded due to huge pressure and gravity and this led to the formation of protons,neutrons and others.So everything that we see now has just come from a tiny particle.The thing is I don:t understand how the particle could explode.It was very tiny so the gravity and pressure wouldn't have been strong enough.
    How did that explosion take place ? What exactly happened that led to such an explosion ?

    'Big bang' was a joke name originating from respectable people at that time, who thought that the Universe should be in a 'steady state'.
    According to recent observation, apparently it is not, it is getting bigger, but not exploding.

    So you mean the particle didn't explode but just got bigger? In that case,what makes it grow bigger ?

    A little more detail would be helpful, like author / ISBN number.

    No, the higgs boson has nothing to do with the big bang as far as I know.
