The Nobel Prize Connection: The Higgs Boson aka The God Particle

Abstract: The 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to theorists Peter
Higgs and Francois Englert to recognize their work that led to
the development of the theory now known as the Higgs field, which
gives elementary particles mass. I am a part of the team of U.S.
scientists that played a significant role in advancing the theory
and in discovering the particle that proves the existence of the
Higgs Field, the Higgs Boson, aka the "God" Particle. In this
presentation I will take the audience on a grand journey from the
beginning of the universe through the present, describing objects
moving near the speed of light and colliding to make temperatures
far hotter than the center of the sun. The largest scientific
machine ever built is the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, the
European Organization for Nuclear Research located in Geneva,
Switzerland. This accelerator probes the smallest constituents
of matter known to mankind today. The search for the "God"
particle has been a worldwide effort in the high-energy physics
community for more than 20 years. It has been an untiring
attempt to explain the origin of mass.
