Homer Simpson discovered Higgs boson 14 years before scientists



Homer Simpson predicted the mass of the Higgs boson, often known as "the God particle," 14 years before it was discovered by scientists, a science writer claims.

In a 1998 episode of the hit animated television show “The Simpsons,” the character more famous for his love of doughnuts than mathematics is shown in front of a blackboard working on an equation. That equation predicted the mass of the Higgs boson, according to author Simon Singh.

"The Simpsons is the most mathematical TV show on prime-time television in history. A lot of the writers on The Simpsons are mathematicians," Singh told a literary festival, according to The UK Daily Telegraph.

"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,” Singh, author of “The Simpsons and their Mathematic Secrets,” said. “It's kind of amazing as Homer makes this prediction 14 years before it was discovered."

Up until late 1990s early 2000, the Simpsons were the standard barer in comedic animation but somehow things went horribly wrong fast. The first eight to ten seasons were pure gold episode after episode
