Higgs boson: the inside scoop

In July 2012, physicists found a particle that might be the long-sought Higgs boson. In the intervening months, scientists have worked hard to pin down the identity of this discovery. In this video, US CMS Education and Outreach Coordinator Don Lincoln describes researchers’ current understanding of the particle that might be the Higgs. The evidence is quite strong, but the final chapter of this story might well require the return of the Large Hadron Collider to full operations in 2015. View the video. Video: Fermilab
