Higgs at 10

On 4 July 2012, researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) made a long-awaited announcement: they had finally obtained evidence that affirmed the existence of the Higgs boson. In this week’s issue, teams from the two main experiments at the LHC present analyses of all the data collected on the particle since its discovery. The standard model of particle physics predicts that coupling between the Higgs boson and any given particle should be proportional to their mass — the results from CMS and ATLAS experiments show that, for the heavy particles they have been able to observe, the data are in line with predictions. A Perspective article goes on to offer an overview of what we have learnt about the particle so far — and how closer scrutiny of it might be key to some of the most important open questions in fundamental physics.
