The Discovery of the Higgs Boson (#higgsmooc)
Why should we be excited about the Higgs boson? Find out more about particle physics and understanding the universe.
The discovery of a new fundamental particle at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), CERN is the latest step in a long quest seeking to answer one of physics’ most enduring questions: why do particles have mass? The experiments’ much anticipated success confirms predictions made decades earlier by Peter Higgs and others, and offers a glimpse into a universe of physics beyond the Standard Model.
