Few experiments in physics have attracted as much attention as the Large Hadron Collider. Ever since its inception in September 2008, the LHC has been plagued by problems, and it could get back into operation only earlier this week. One of the most-anticipated events within the LHC is the detection of the Higgs Boson, the so-called “God Particle.”
On Just to Clarify, we wanted to investigate the nature of this Higgs Boson, to figure out what it does and how its discovery will change particle physics.
Our guest on the show today is CS Unnikrishnan, a faculty member in the department of High Energy Physics at the Tata Institute for Fundamental Research in Mumbai.
