The article reports on the Hadron Collider. It is a massive �1.3bn experiment at particle physics hub CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, that will help scientists better understand the universe by accelerating sub-atomic particles around a 27km tube and smashing them together at energies not seen since the Big Bang. Among other weird effects like creating mini-black holes, it should prove the existence of the elusive Higgs Boson, the so-called "God particle" that physicists think interacts with all matter to give it mass.

    The flavor democracy hypothesis (or, in other words, democratic mass matrix approach) was introduced in seventies taking in mind three Standard Model (SM) families. Later, this idea was disfavored by the large value of the t-quark mass. In nineties the hypothesis was revisited assuming that...
