Higgs Boson

This Catalyst article looks at the Higgs boson, a fundamental particle discovered by scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Geneva, on July 4th 2012, after it was first predicted almost 50 years earlier. The Higgs boson is predicted by the ‘Standard Model’, which makes up the set of fundamental particles that explain how matter behaves.

The article is from Catalyst: Secondary Science Review 2012, Volume 23, Issue 1.
