  energy of the vacuum state

Image :  The swarming of vacuum in which we must recognize the Higgs particle. We know from Max Planck (1858 − 1947) and his famous formula E = hv that radiation is pure energy. Moreover, since Albert Einstein (1879 − 1955) and special relativity, energy can be transformed into matter and matter into energy. The vacuum would swarm particles for very short time. The particles of matter or energy spread in this quasi-middle swarming.
Radiation fill the whole universe, the vacuum has a complex structure whose all its variables are zero. On the image we see a collision in the Higgs field, protons with lead ions in the ALICE detector. Photo taken during the trial run for September 2012 (Image : CERN).

nota : The Higgs boson, also known as the BEH boson (Robert Brout, François Englert, Peter Higgs) is an elementary particle of the Higgs field.
   
  vacuum state

Image : card of the background of the sky as seen by Planck. We live in a vast emptiness to the complex structure whose all magnitudes have zero mean values. But this vacuum has a considerable energy, this vacuum energy is greater than the energy of ordinary matter. It might have played a role in the development of our real universe and then in its inflation. Credits : ESA- collaboration Planck-HFI
