Postcard from Geneva

By Sean Carroll | July 9, 2012 10:12 am

Here’s a short video, courtesy of NOVA, that we made on our trip to Geneva. Hopefully the excitement of the moment comes through… (Note: might be hard/impossible to view the video outside the US, sorry.)

Watch Higgs Boson Revealed on PBS. See more from NOVA.

    The video doesn’t seem to work, but there is a nice ad for LEWIS. I didn’t know you got that in the US, impressive!

    Do your research , if you are in Canada, there are ways to change your IP address to a U.S one, then this is just a glitch. You should be able to watch this in Canada.

    My god…..I can’t believe we’re talking about how we’ve found the higgs. I thought we’d find it, but not a month after I turned 17….

    How about watching it from Europe? I really do not believe that I am supposed to spoof my IP or use anonymous proxy stuff, just to see someone’s video on the web. What is broken with it and why? To whom should I complain about it, report the issue, etc.?

    Best, :-)

    this is a great great achievement. i have a question. even with a standard deviation less than 5, would this not need to be independently verified by experimentalist from different institutions to say this is a definite discovery?….we really need to build more such accelerators or how will our knowledge advance?
