Artist's Description

The Higgs boson or Higgs particle is an elementary particle initially theorised in 1964,26 whose discovery was announced at CERN on 4 July 2012,7 and confirmed likely to be a Higgs boson in March 2013. The discovery has been called “monumental”89 because it appears to confirm the existence of the Higgs field,1011 which is pivotal to the Standard Model and other theories within particle physics. It would explain why some fundamental particles have mass when the symmetries controlling their interactions should require them to be massless, and why the weak force has a much shorter range than the electromagnetic force. The discovery of a Higgs boson should allow physicists to finally validate the last untested area of the Standard Model’s approach to fundamental particles and forces, guide other theories and discoveries in particle physics, and potentially lead to developments in “new” physics.12
