Physicist Jon Butterworth explores the topic of Higgs boson; the missing link between the birth of our universe and the tangible world we live in today. For over 50 years scientists have wondered: Does it exist? Read about Jon's first inside account of that uncertain time, when an entire field hinged on a single particle and life at the cutting edge of science meant media scrutiny, light-night pub debates and countless hours at the collider itself. As Butterworth explains, our first glimpse of the elusive Higgs brings us a giant step closer to understanding the universe - and points the way to an entirely new kind of physics.
