Higgs Boson

Now I'm the first to admit that understanding particle physics is not my forte, I'm a gardener after all, but with the announcement from CERN about their discovery of the Higgs Boson it's a pivotal moment in our understanding of how the universe works. So what does that mean to us every day people? Well, we'll have to wait and see. Like all discoveries and advances in understanding, the effects will be felt over time from new inventions to increased understanding, to scientists asking new questions.

To understand what the Higgs Boson actually is, watch this video.
