Jorge Cham captures the essense of science explaining the Higgs Boson

leave a comment

For anyone who ever asks “What’s the appeal of science?” or “Why bother with science?” I would encourage them to watch this video by Jorge Cham from PhD Comics. In it he illustrates his interview with Daniel Whiteson from CERN. He explains one of the goals of the Large Hadron Collider, which is to look for evidence for the elusive Higgs Boson. Everything is explained very succinctly and even playfully, and I think it’s wonderful. Go and watch it!
