The intensity of the last few weeks has been almost beyond description, and certainly unmatched in my career as a theoretical physicist. For me, and for many of my colleagues, the end of a decades-long hunt for the Higgs particle comes with a sense almost of disbelief. Did this really just happen? Did the years and years of anticipation, which had become almost a part of our communal culture, a sort of Waiting For Godot, a hope for a Promised Land always out of reach, actually come to an end?
First Time Visitor?This site (new and still growing rapidly) will eventually cover many topics in science, but currently focuses on particle physics in particular. My aim is to serve the public, including those with no background knowledge of physics, but also those who have been keeping track of the latest in particle physics news. If you're not yourself an expert, you might want to click on "New? Start Here" or "About" to get started.
