The Search for "The God Particle"

Higgs Boson

Just over a year ago, a group of physicists at CERN, Switzerland, made a momentous announcement: they'd found the Higgs boson, popularly known as "the God Particle."  Astrophysicist Sean Carroll takes us behind the scenes at the search for the Higgs boson, a discovery that took $9 billion, decades of effort, and the work of thousands of researchers at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.  Join us at 8:00 as Dr. Carroll gives the 11th Annual Bartlett Lecture at the Linda Hall Library in Kansas City, Missouri.
