The announcement on July 4 was just one part of the story. Take a peek behind the scenes of the discovery of the Higgs boson.
Four physicists discuss Higgs boson research since the discovery.
The Higgs appeared in the second run of the LHC about twice as fast as it did in the first.
Higgs bosons should mass-produce bottom quarks. So why is it so hard to see it happening?
The Higgs field gives mass to elementary particles, but most of our mass comes from somewhere else.
The Higgs doesn’t quite fit in with the other particles of the Standard Model of particle physics.
The CMS and ATLAS experiments combined forces to more precisely measure properties of the Higgs boson.
Physicists discovered one type of Higgs boson in 2012. Now they’re looking for more.
