A Quick, Simple Explanation of the Higgs Boson [Video]
At this point, you probably know that yesterday, we found the Higgs Boson (or at least a particle that looks an awful lot like it’s the Higgs Boson). You probably don’t know exactly what that means, in the grand scheme of things. Fortunately, a timely little short from MinutePhysics sums up the whole situation nicely, and will tell you everything you need to know if you want to use your newly-gained knowledge of particle physics to wow your friends. You could probably just make stuff up, but this way is probably a little bit better.
