We Have a Discovery: The Future of the Higgs Boson
Panel discussion with Professor Ben Allanach, Professor John Ellis CBE FRS, Professor Tara Shears, Professor Terry Wyatt FRS and chaired by Alok Jha.
'We have a discovery. We have observed a new particle consistent with a Higgs boson. It is a milestone, I think we can all be proud.' These were the words of Rolf Heuer, CERN Director General, on 4th July 2012, when a ground-breaking moment in particle physics arrived after an ongoing search of half a century for the elusive 'God particle'. But what does this actually mean to us, and what does the future look like? Our panel of experts discussed what the hunt was all about, the importance and broader implications of the discovery, and what we are now planning to do moving forwards.

|The Hunt for the Higgs
This is a BBC Horizon documentary presented by Jim Al-Khalili, revealing how CERN is searching for the Higgs particle and why it is so significant.
|The Higgs Boson Explained
This Talk explains what the Higgs is, why it was predicted and how it was proven to exist.
|The Long Road to the Higgs Boson and Beyond
The discovery of the Higgs boson in 2012 was the end of a decades-long search for a fundamental particle proving how particles gain mass, but its discovery leaves many questions unanswered.
|The Particle at the End of the Universe
Sean Carroll reveals the history-making forces of insight, rivalry, and wonder that fuelled the Higgs search and how its discovery opens a door into the mind-boggling domain of dark matter and other phenomena we never predicted.
|The Higgs Boson and the Fate of the Universe
The discovery of the Higgs boson at the CERN Large Hadron Collider poses new challenges to our understanding of basic quantum physics.
|The Search for New Particles and Forces
This talk will review the search for new basic interactions in nature and the experimental methods that the LHC brings to this question.
|Particle Physics: Standard Model
Professor Susskind continues his particle physics theme, focusing on the foundations of the Standard Model, which describes the interactions and properties of the observed particles.
