Hunt for the Higgs [electronic resource]

BBC Worldwide Ltd
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
This program goes behind the scenes at CERN to follow one of the most ambitious scientific quests of all time: the mission to find the elusive Higgs boson, aka the God particle. The particle is believed to give mass to everything in existence, making it part of a much grander inquiry into how the universe works. Hosted by theoretical physicist Jim Al-Khalili, the video features insights from enthusiastic scientists - including Michio Kaku and supersymmetry pioneer S. James Gates - who are deeply involved with the search.
