Big mysteries: the Higgs mass

With the discovery of what looks to be the Higgs boson, LHC researchers are turning their attention to the next big question, the predicted mass of the newly discovered particle. When the effects of quantum mechanics is taken into account, the mass of the Higgs boson should be incredibly high — much higher than what was observed. CMS Education and Outreach Coordinator Don Lincoln explains how it is that the theory predicts that the mass is so large and gives at least one possible theoretical idea that might solve the problem.
