I had to share this video partly because it starts with a funny rap video about the Higgs Boson and partly because this discussion is excellent. I mean, how can we resist a rap video about particle physics? Clearly, this video will not win any awards, but the content is very important. Our understanding of our world has been greatly changed with the discovery of this particle.
Critical Mass: How the Higgs Boson Discovery Swept the World (Published on Feb 14, 2013)
Discovery: Last summer, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland, announced the discovery of a new particle that could explain why elementary particles have mass. On February 7, 2013, a panel of experts from the University of Chicago, Argonne National Laboratory, and Fermilab discussed why this discovery marks the beginning of a new era in particle physics research.
