The Particle at the End of the Universe
It was the universe's most elusive particle, the linchpin for everything scientists dreamed up to explain how stuff works. It had to be found. But projects as big as CERN's Large Hadron Collider don't happen without dealing and conniving, incredible risks and occasional skullduggery.
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 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 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.
|Expanding Our Horizon: Matter, Space and the Universe
Professor Lisa Randall will tell us about the Higgs boson discovery and its implications. She will also explore possibilities for the nature of dark matter and of space itself.
|Mysteries of Matter at the LHC
Two years ago, the Higgs Boson was discovered by the ATLAS and CMS experiments. But how precisely does it fill its role as the last missing piece in the Standard Model of particle physics?
