introduced by Assoc. Prof. Peter Wittich (Physics)

Mark Levinson

Particle physics superstar—the Higgs boson “God particle”—and the CERN Large Hadron Collider are the central figures in this documentary that artfully weaves science with stunning imagery to create a film that will appeal to both the scientific, and lay communities. The emotional ups and downs that led to the discovery of Higgs boson, and the still-to-be-determined significance of what it could mean for the very foundation of the universe make for a fascinating, and undeniably human film. Cosponsored with the Dept. of Physics.
