We've tried and, even with Ian Sample, some ping-pong balls and a bag of sugar , understanding what the Higgs boson is – and how scientists will know if they've found it – is proving difficult: Can you help us break it down into even simpler terms? If you're a scientist, a teacher or a physics fan with a knack for explaining big ideas and small particles, we're imploring you to help. • How would you explain Higgs boson to a seven-year-old? • Which analogy best explains what's happening at Cern ?

About Stanford University One of the world's leading universities, Stanford was founded in 1885 in what is now Stanford, California.
Imagine you have two individual particles.
Quantum Physics, Spirituality And Your Life Experience : They're Not As Different Nor as Separate As You May Currently Think And Believe.
Quantum entanglement occurs when particles such as photons , electrons , molecules as large as buckyballs , [ 1 ] [ 2 ] and even small diamonds [ 3 ] [ 4 ] interact physically and then become separated; the type of interaction is such that each resulting member of a pair is properly described by the same quantum mechanical description ( state ), which is indefinite in terms of important factors such as position , [ 5 ] momentum , spin , polarization , etc.
Quantum mechanics (QM – also known as quantum physics , or quantum theory ) is a branch of physics dealing with physical phenomena at microscopic scales, where the action is on the order of the Planck constant .
