Ep. 1 – OMGod Particle!

This year, the Higgs Boson was discovered at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. The dream team discusses what in God’s name the God particle actually is and what it does, and what it means for us that we found it. Mostly, it involves us trying to decipher particle physics jargon and Raj explains how Star Wars is just a watered-down version of Hinduism.

The paper: “Observation of a New Particle in the search for the Standard Model Higgs boson with the Atlas detector at the LHC”
