As far as the Higgs Boson, I'm pretty sure that confirming it's existence has no practical aspects to it. It simply confirms an already well integrated model of physics. But who knows, maybe physicists will learn enough about the mass-giving Higgs Boson to finally explain how gravity fits into this whole thing. Or maybe we can find out how mass is given. That would have endless practical aspects.
Imagine we could manipulate mass? I'd be floated my ass to work everyday like spider man.
I was reading about something similar, about a paradox where if an atomic particle is traveling at the speed of light, then how do the electrons circle it? Because they would be traveling at the speed of light + the speed of rotation around the atom. (I don't know much about chemical physics as you can tell).
Really interesting science though. Wish I understood more of it.
I also watched a video actually discussing the practical applications of the Higgs Boson (or knowledge of how it works.) Was talking about using it to distort the mass of materials like steel, to make it lighter. Crazy stuff like that. If I remember where I found it ill link it here.
