Published on 4 Jul 2012 by CERNTV Soundbytes from the interviews to Peter Higgs, Francois Englert, Carl Hagen and Gerald Guralnik, recorded at CERN on the announcement of the latest results from ATLAS and CMS on the Higgs boson searches.
This is certainly The Materials Matter of 2012 and perhaps the most far reaching discovery of the last 50y or more. It brings to the fore Peter Higgs' (et al.) courageous theoretical prediction in 1964 of an undetected (and undetectable until now) particle named commonly as "Higgs' Boson" It's importance is such in terms of human understanding of the universe and furthering of knowledge of life itself. Seeking this most elusive particle has pulled together massive investment, motivating record breaking science technology and engineering experimental performance at CERN's LHC (Large Hadron Collider) This discovery will certainly make the 4th of July 2012 a date on the Nobel Prize award agenda, it confirms previous approaches and points the way to further astounding progress. A material that matters indeed.
