Video – So, what is this Higgs Boson thing anyway?

No, this isn’t a video by me. Chad Cloman passed along a very nice video where Jorge Cham and Daniel Whiteson of CERN explain, for those who don’t know, what the Higgs Boson does, and how it affects our view of the universe.

One reply

  1. In a related story, the late Adbus Salam, who, along with Steven Weinberg, predicted the existence of the Higgs-boson, is not being celebrated in his home country of Pakistan, because he belonged to an “heretical” sect. His name does not even appear in texts in that country.

    In case we needed any more reminders that science and religious zealotry don’t mix.

    “God particle” jokes, anyone?
