Episode 69: The Large Hadron Collider and the Search for the Higgs-Boson

December 31st, 2007

Episode 70 of 460 episodes

When it was first developed, the standard model predicted a collection of particles, and thanks to more and more powerful colliders, physicsists have been able to find them all except one: the Higgs-Boson. It's an important one because it should explain how objects have mass. The European Large Hadron Collider should have the power and sensitivity to find the Higgs-Boson.
