Symmetry readers find the Higgs boson

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider weren’t the only ones to discover a Higgs-like particle. When we asked symmetry breaking readers to send us their own evidence of a Higgs boson, they sent a massive outpouring of creative candidates.

On July 4, we asked readers to show us where they’d spotted the Higgs boson. It seems the Higgs has been giving mass to particles around the universe and throughout history, judging by the flood of entries we received.

According to your votes, the top three Higgs hunters were Dennis Beunk, Jerome Sprecher and Kevin Munday. Congratulations to you three and also to those whose entries received honorable mentions. Thanks to everyone who entered and voted!
