Can "God Particle" Destroy the Universe

Another topic of discussion not related to the this blog but, fascinating. According to the most famous Physicist of the world Dr. Stephen Hawkings the "GOD PARTICLE" discovered in 2012 could destroy the Universe.

He said that at very high energy levels the Higgs Boson could become unstable, causing a " catastrophic vacuum dacay" that can collapse space and time. But, possibilitiy of happening this is very low because the scientist till date don't have a particle accelerator large enough to do this stuff.

In his new book " Starmus : 50 years of Man in Space" he says

"The Higgs potential has the worrisome feature that it might become megastable at energies above 100bn giga-electron-volts (GeV)," Professor Hawking writes.
"This could mean that the universe could undergo catastrophic vacuum decay, with a bubble of the true vacuum expanding at the speed of light.
"This could happen at any time and we wouldn't see it coming."
Well it can be seen only in near future that what happens with the Higgs Boson.
