European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) revealed that physicists may be able to provide clear information about “God particle,” called Higgs boson, by 2012, according to reports by several international news sites on Tuesday, May 17, 2011.

In a press conference held at the Britain’s Royal Society, director general of CERN, Rolf-Dieter Heuer said, “I’m pretty confident that towards the end of 2012 we will have an answer to the Shakespeare question for the Higgs boson – to be, or not to be?”

To find the answers to Higgs boson, CERN is currently using Large Hadron Collider, the world’s biggest particle accelerator, located outside of Geneva.

According to reports, Higgs was named after British physicist Peter Higgs who conducted a study about the existence of  “God particle.”
