When was the Higgs actually discovered?

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.


Q&A: What more can we learn about the Higgs?

Four physicists discuss Higgs boson research since the discovery.


Higgs boson resurfaces in LHC data

The Higgs appeared in the second run of the LHC about twice as fast as it did in the first.


The Higgs-shaped elephant in the room

Higgs bosons should mass-produce bottom quarks. So why is it so hard to see it happening?


Where does mass come from?

The Higgs field gives mass to elementary particles, but most of our mass comes from somewhere else.


Where the Higgs belongs

The Higgs doesn’t quite fit in with the other particles of the Standard Model of particle physics.


Combined results find Higgs still standard

The CMS and ATLAS experiments combined forces to more precisely measure properties of the Higgs boson.


One Higgs is the loneliest number

Physicists discovered one type of Higgs boson in 2012. Now they’re looking for more.
