The Higgs Boson, Part III: How to Discover a Particle
About this video
600 million collisions, every second, for two years.
Guest featuring John Green of Crash Course this Minute Physics episode looks at exactly how one goes about 'discovering' a particle such as the Higgs Boson – or should we really say scientific 'fact checking'?
Even after we've built our large particle colliders and performed huge numbers of collisions, how sure do we need to be before we can claim to have confirmed its existence? What extent must modern physicists go to, to confirm their predictions and successfully 'fact check' their science?
