What exactly is the Higgs boson?

How does the observation affect the world of physics?

How critical is this finding to our world?

Physicists have observed a new particle that so far matches the signature they expect from the long-sought Higgs boson. Join us as Vivek Sharma, Professor of Physics at UC San Diego, who led the search at CERN from 2010-2011, explains the significance of this discovery, and the quest to find the undiscovered.
