ExtremeTech :: What Is The Higgs Boson and Why Is It Important to Science?

Over at ExtremeTech a few weeks back, I penned a column that I’m actually very proud of – essentially a layman’s guide to what the Higgs Boson is and why it’s important to scientific discovery and physicists everywhere. After all, we’re spending a lot of time looking for it, it’s just as well that someone took the time to explain to people what it is and why it’s important beyond calling it “the God particle,” which in itself has little to no connotation.

I won’t try to recap that post here, I just strongly suggest you head over to take a look, but this video is also an excellent primer, one that I thought was good enough that it should be included in the post itself.
