Once the existence of Higgs Boson is known, there will be further work to prove its properties and understand the origins of the universe.

Dr Heuer said: "If the Large Hadron Collider continues to work I know we have enough collisions to produce enough signals to identify the Higgs Boson.

“We will know by the end of this year whether it exists or whether it is non-existent. This would be a huge discovery that after 50 years we are able to describe the visible universe.

"We will have taken a big step forward about our knowledge of the physical world. It will help us to understand the creation of the universe."

CERN require a high level of proof and will only announce that the Higgs Boson exists when there is just a one in three million chance they are wrong.

Dr Heuer said the discovery of the Higgs Boson will also help investigations into this wider universe. The visible universe only makes up 5 per cent and the rest is ‘dark energy’ and ‘dark matter’.

He said it was impossible to imagine at this stage how the knowledge of the particle could be applied to practical applications but pointed to previous discoveries have led to developments in medicine and the internet.

“Whatever basic science resolves, at some stage it is of use to society. The problem is we do not know when or where.”

The search for the God Particle has proved controversial. Critics feared the Large Hadron Collider could create a massive black hole that would "swallow the Earth".

Religious groups have also questioned the search for a particle at the origins of the universe.

Dr Heuer admitted that "micro black holes" may be created in the Large Hadron Collider but he insisted this was safe as they would decay almost immediately and it could even be good for science as it shows that micro black holes are occurring all the time.

He has had meetings with the Pope and insisted that the interface where science ends and religion or philosophy begins is changing all the time.

Results from the Tevatron particle accelerator in Boston released yesterday closely mirror the “hints” of the Higgs observed at the Large Hadron Collider late last year.

Because the two rival laboratories found strikingly similar evidence for the elusive particle despite having used different methods to look for it, the findings independently support the growing belief that the Higgs has been pinned down at last.

But even when taken together, the two sets of evidence are not strong enough for physicists to officially claim a discovery and some leading scientists still believe the particle does not exist.

The Higgs Boson is the last missing piece of the Standard Model which details what the universe is made of and how particles within it interact, but still only exists in theory because it has never been detected. Physicists using the Large Hadron Collider at the Cern laboratory in Switzerland expect to confirm or rule out the existence of a Standard Model Higgs by this autumn. (if this gets further pushed back, it might occur around Dec. 21, 2012-Editor’s note) Rest of Story HERE….
