Scientists at Cern discover the Higgs Boson this week 35 years after Obi Wan Kenobi first chatted about it in Star Wars back in 1977!

"The Higgs boson is the only visible and particular manifestation of an invisible force field that permeates space binding the Universe on a molecular level" Science Today 2012

"It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together" Obi Wan Kenobi 1977
