It is three years since we 'discovered' the Higgs boson at CERN's Large Hadron Collider. This new Higgs particle gives strong support to the theory that predicts it: the Nobel-prize winning Brout-Englert-Higgs mechanism. This process was first dreamed up half a century ago, and is particularly special because it has the effect of taking all of the massless particles from our mathematics and transforming them into the particles we actually observe in the world around us. What does it all mean?!

Event type: Lecture/Talk
