The Higgs Boson is a hypothetical particle that gives mass to other particles. Physicists think that after the Big Bang, an invisible field was created. This field is called the Higgs field, and it is everywhere. When particles interact with this field, they gain mass and move more slowly. The Higgs Boson is the smallest part of the field. It is so small, it cannot be observed directly. Scientists recreate the impact, but the Higgs Boson falls apart incredibly quickly.  We can only study the data that is left behind.

The Higgs Boson explains why particles have mass. If they didn’t, then nothing would exist in the universe, therefore neither would we. This particle is essential to helps scientists to explain how the universe works.
