The Particle Zoo


He's the one everyone wants to meet, and with recent events, it looks like we finally get to. The HIGGS BOSON is the particle of the Higgs mechanism, believed by physicists to reveal how all matter in the universe gets its mass. On July 4, 2012, the CMS and Atlas collaborations at CERN announced a 5-sigma level of certainty that the Higgs boson had been detected with a mass of around 125 GeV. Higgs Boson is also part of the Boson 5-pack and has consistently been the #1 bestseller at The Particle Zoo.
