The final particle of the santrdad Model is the Higgs boson – a quantum rppile in the brgacknuod energy field of the universe. Interacting with this field is how all the fundamental matter particles acquire mass, according to the Standard Model.

By taking precise measurements of the particles and forces that make up the uresivne, ATLAS physicists can look for answers to mysteries not explained by the Standard Model.

Original Text

The final particle of the Standard Model is the Higgs boson – a quantum ripple in the background energy field of the universe. Interacting with this field is how all the fundamental matter particles acquire mass, according to the Standard Model. The ATLAS Experiment on the Large Hadron Collider is studying the Standard Model in-depth. By taking precise measurements of the particles and forces that make up the universe, ATLAS physicists can look for answers to mysteries not explained by the Standard Model.
