"The Year of the Higgs Boson" by Elizabeth H. Simmons

In the year since the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN) dramatically announced the discovery of a new particle, the high-energy physics world has been all abuzz. All indications are that the newcomer is a Higgs Boson, a particle at the heart of mass in our universe. Elizabeth Simmons, a particle physicist who studies the origin of mass will put the Higgs search in context, explain the new results, and discuss the implications for particle physics... and beyond.
