As part of the biggest science experiment ever attempted, physicists have discovered the Higgs boson, at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland. Now a new generation of young scientists, many of them from the USA, are finding creative ways to get this elusive particle, often referred to in popular media as the “god particle,” to reveal its secrets. This is a story with many surprises and challenges, including exploding magnets, international conspiracies, dark matter, invisible energy fields, and possibly the end of the universe.
