UVIC - It's the kind of thing that makes you wish you'd paid closer attention in high school Physics.

In the world of science it doesn't get any bigger than this -- the discovery of the so called 'God Particle.'

It is very, very small, but is a very big deal. This may help explain how the building blocks of the universe have been pieced together.

And a group of scientists from the University of Victoria played a big part.

The team have been working for two decades to track the Higgs-Boson particle, now they are 99.999% sure they found it.

The particle is thought to be the 'glue' that holds electrons, neutrons, and protons together -- giving them shape and mass, and allowing them to become everything we see in our universe.
