‘God particle’ up for sale on eBay!Jul 8, 11:10 am
London, July 8 (ANI): An online prankster, who seemed to have been inspired by last week’s discovery of the ‘God particle’, put up a “used” Higgs Boson up for sale on eBay.
Stephen, 46, of Christchurch, Dorset said that although he found the “used” Higgs Boson in his vacuum cleaner, he did not realise what it was until scientists at the Large Hadron Collider made their recent discovery.
“I’d seen adverts for other silly things on eBay and wanted to try and do the same kind of thing,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.
“To be quite honest, the science of the Higgs boson is a bit over my head,” he added.
