3Qs: Searching for the “Holy Grail” of physics

Researchers at CERN, the Euro­pean Center for Nuclear Research, reported this week they are get­ting closer to dis­cov­ering the Higgs boson, a sub­atomic par­ticle that sci­en­tists believe will explain why every­thing in the uni­verse has mass. The Higgs boson is con­sid­ered to be the “Holy Grail” of par­ticle physics, and finding it would be a great sci­en­tific advance­ment. We asked Emanuela Bar­beris, asso­ciate pro­fessor of physics, to explain the Higgs boson and what its dis­covery would mean to the world’s sci­en­tific community.
