So, scientists at CERN believe they have found the Higgs boson exists. This is really big news because with the Higgs boson confirmed, models which rely on it to determine why and how other particles have mass are also confirmed. It is the culmination of 50+ years and untold billions of dollars in research. [...]

Good morning everyone.
Particle physics is a rather complicated affair and uses [...]
