Refining the picture of the Higgs boson

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

To explain the masses of electroweak bosons—the W and Z bosons—theorists in the 1960s postulated a mechanism of spontaneous symmetry breaking. While this mathematical formalism is relatively simple, its cornerstone—the Higgs boson – remained undetected for almost 50 years.

Since its discovery in 2012, researchers of the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have tirelessly investigated the properties of the Higgs boson. They've measured its mass to be around 125 GeV—that's about 130 times the mass of the proton at rest—and found it has zero electric charge and spin.

I've been watching these vids, presented by Steve Tyler...pause for thought?
