In 2012, scientists the world over jumped for joy with news they had been waiting decades for - conclusive proof of the existence of the Higgs Boson. The rest of us stared on in mild confusion. Here, acclaimed science writer Jim Baggott lets us in on the story of this famous particle, from the early days of it's first being theorised all the way to the aftermath and implications of its discovery.
In a chatty, witty tone, Baggott demystifies the Large Hadron Collider, simple particle physics, and what one little particle means to our big complex universe.
