The Sound of the Universe

"God particle signal is simulated as sound"

"The Higgs boson particle is thought to give all others their mass"

Scientists have simulated the sounds set to be made by sub-atomic particles such as the Higgs boson when they are produced at the Large Hadron Collider.

Their aim is to develop a means for physicists at Cern to "listen to the data" and pick out the Higgs particle if and when they finally detect it.

(The sounds are amazing and organized)
