We might be closer than ever to an amazing scientific discovery, what a great time to be alive!

Fifty years ago, particle physicists faced an unexpected challenge. Their best mathematical models could account for some of the natural forces that explain the structure and behaviour of matter at a fundamental level, such as electromagnetism and the weak nuclear force responsible for radioactive decay. But the models worked only if the particles inside of atoms had no mass. How could huge conglomerations of such particles - proteins, people, planets - behave as they do if their constituent parts weighed nothing at all? Some physicists invented a clever suggestion. They proposed that a type of particle exists that had never been detected; it was eventually named in honour of the British physicist Peter Higgs. For a half-century, physicists searched for the elusive "Higgs particle". Now, following research conducted at CERN, the sprawling particle-physics laboratory near G...
