How to make a Higgs boson

It doesn’t seem like collisions of particles with no mass should be able to produce the “mass-giving” boson, the Higgs. But every other second at the LHC, they do.

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.
