Intrade markets bet against a Higgs Boson particle found before December 31, 2013. The price has dropped from 50 to 29 in the last few months even as the Large Hadron Collider began to smash sub-atomic particles together and record the data of their collisions for analysis.

The Higgs Boson is considered the most likely current candidate for our understanding of mass. If the LHC does not find a Higgs Boson then alternative theories of mass will become much more likely.

if the Higgs Boson does not exist, then the very successful Standard Model of particle physics will have to be reworked.

To date all tests confirm the Standard Model, which unites and explains the three of the four main forces of nature, the weak force, the strong force and the electromagnetic force. It does not explain or unite with the other three forces, the fourth force, gravity. It also does not explain dark matter or dark energy.
