Discovery: Tejinder Virdee, CERN Physicist — Jim al-Khalili talks to CERN physicist, Tejinder Virdee about the search for the elusive Higgs boson or "God" particle at the Large Hadron Collider.
LHC physicist Prof Jon Butterworth provides a super-condensed course in quantum mechanics, particle physics and the Standard Model
The history of the quest to find the Higgs Boson, also known as the ‘God Particle’. With Jim Al-Khalili, David Wark and Roger Cashmore.
The recent discovery of a new subatomic particle, believed to be the long-sought Higgs boson, was hailed as one of the biggest announcements in physics for a century - as a human achievement which will be known 300 years from now. The Higgs Boson is the final missing ingredient in the Standard Model of particle physics. This model describes the fundamental particles from which every visible thing in the universe is made, and the forces acting between them. Listen to the scientists at the level of the experiments which led to this discovery.
