Heh, bet it's hard as hell though. I used to hang on a science channel on IRC many years ago, one of the guys was a theoretical physics student at Cambridge. He was without doubt a very odd guy.

In the cool way.

EDIT: No wait, it was quantum physics.

It can be tough yeah, but totally worth it. It really is an exciting subject to study.

I studied physics at the University of Manchester, there were some truly inspirational physicists there........ all of them were bonkers, but in a good way.

I don't really care what it's called but it's all very exciting.

No one in the scientific community has called it as such... save for the Nobel Prize-winning experimental physicist who wrote the first book about the particle.

'nor has it ever been referred to as such' was an over statement, of course it's been called that, but the 'God Particle' is nothing more than a media spin, it's not called that in particle physics. Physicists don't really use the term. Except perhaps when confronted by the aforementioned media, to make the Higgs Boson sound more interesting to the people who have no fucking idea what it is.

EDIT - What you posted is a good example, a book with 'God Particle' in the title is certainly going to draw more attention to it than one with 'Higgs Boson' in the title.

Look, you have nowhere to run, now. Scientists found God. They found what God is MADE OF. Just proof that God is real and science is wrong! Er, wa-

The Nobel Laureate Leon Lederman coined the phrase "The God Particle" as the title of his otherwise excellent book as a way of underscoring how essential the Higgs is in our Standard Model of Physics. You can get away with that sort of hype when you're a Nobel prize winner. It also sold roughly 10 gajillion copies. He also got cutesy afterwards, and used to semi-seriously defend the name by saying that the publisher wouldn't let him call it the goddamn particle.

We need to find the Jesus Particle now.....but it's incredibly elusive, as it's wave-function collapses and the particle dies whenever we sin, then spontaneously comes back 3 days later.
