Critical Mass: How the Higgs Boson Discovery Swept the World

Last summer, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, announced the discovery of a new particle that could explain why elementary particles have mass.

This event was part of the new UChicago Discovery series, a new biannual public speaker series at the University of Chicago.
