Seeing the First Evidence of the Higgs Boson Particle

Seeing the First Evidence of the Higgs Boson Particle

FORA.tv (Nov. 29, 2012) — CUNY's Institute for Theoretical Sciences discusses the discovery of the Higgs boson particle. In July, researchers at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland, announced that they found convincing evidence of a new particle called the Higgs boson, using the Large Hadron Collider, the world's most powerful particle accelerator. Sometimes called the "God particle," the Higgs boson is a sub-atomic particle that is a building block of the universe. Kyle Cranmer, Assistant Professor of Physics at New York University, and Neal Weiner, Associate Professor of Physics at New York University, discuss how scientists made the discovery and why it is significant. The NYU Experimental High Energy Physics group has been a key part of a world-wide collaboration in the search for the Higgs boson.
