Homer Simpson discovered the Higgs boson before scientists did!
It’s official! Homer Simpson is a genius!
According to Dr Simon Singh, author of The Simpsons and their Mathematical Secrets, Homer Simpson almost predicted the mass of the elementary particle, the Higgs boson, more than a decade before it was discovered!
Dr Singh said: ‘That equation predicts the mass of the Higgs boson. If you work it out you get the mass of a Higgs boson that’s only a bit larger than the nano-mass of a Higgs boson actually is. It’s kind of amazing as Homer makes this prediction 14 years before it was discovered.’
And that wasn’t all…
