Astronomers Discovered An Object Traveling At 99.99999999999999999999951% Of The Speed Of Light



One of the most entertaining names that I’ve come across in the physics sector is the “Oh My God Particle.” Scientists also refer to this  particle as the “ermahgerd particle” (kidding, kidding. It’s not really called that, but it is called the “Oh My God Particle”).  Now, the first thing that may pop into some of your minds is the Higgs Boson, which was discovered in 2012. This isn’t too surprising as the media went around calling it the “God Particle.” However, these two particles are very different.

So what is the Oh My God Particle? Well it is a simple, lowly proton. So why the name?
