The Higgs Boson – A one page explanation

Higgssim

The Higgs Boson – A one page explanation, read them all – they’re all good… What a great idea for a website. An entire list of things that are complex explained in one page and the best ones are chosen. We can think of a few dozen topics that could use this 🙂

In 1993, the UK Science Minister, William Waldegrave, challenged physicists to produce an answer that would fit on one page to the question ‘What is the Higgs boson, and why do we want to find it?’ Here are the winning entries!

Quick, someone start a company called onepagr and get some VC funding STAT!

  1. I know nothing about quantum physics (that makes me an expert I guess 😉 but I really like the explanation by David Miller.
