Higgs Boson And The Research Surrounding it Explained, in Cartoon Form

Via: phdcomics on:Vimeo

While we're on the subject of quantum physics, and sense this video is all about two of my favorite things; cause I'm the kind of guy that picks complex scientific disciplines and theoretical particles as his favorite things. Let's talk about the Higgs boson. Well, let's have someone who might actually have the required knowledge to talk about particle physics and the research surrounding the search for this theoretical bit of matter, talk about  it- in the form of a cartoon. Cause I believe, no matter how old you are, there isn't anything you can't learn by watching cartoons.

In all seriousness. I've written about the Higgs and particle physics in general, several times before. But the Higgs Boson, and the quantum world in which it exists, is without question, such a complex subject, that it's always worth revisiting.
