Stephen Hawking lost $100 Bet on Higgs Boson Discovery

Yesterday the CERN announced that they found Higgs Boson particle (God Particle). They are still holding back on a 100% confirmation. It is for sure though a new particle. If it matches really all criteria to be a Higgs Boson remains to be seen. The BBC's Pallab Ghosh interviewed super famous paralyzed scientist Stephen Hawking about the Higgs boson discovery. Watch the video below.

After suggesting that Professor Higgs should receive the Nobel Prize, he ends the interview with a funny anecdote about him betting against the discovery - he lost $100.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
