Scentists find sign of 'God particle' - Brian Greene explains breakthrough

Yesterday, scientists from CERN, the world's largest particle physics lab, announced that they are closer than ever to finding the so-called "God particle."

Scientists believe that they've spotted hints of this elusive subatomic particle, formally called the Higgs Boson, which is key to an elegant theory explaining how tiny particles work to form all of the matter in the universe.

On American Morning this morning, Brian Greene, theoretical physicist from Columbia University and author of the book "Hidden Reality," explains this discovery and why it is so important to modern physics studies.
