How did physicists combine talent and technology to discover the Higgs boson, the last piece in our inventory of the subatomic world? How did the Higgs change our understanding of the universe? And now, nearly a decade after its detection, what comes next? Answering these questions, Ivo van Vulpen—a CERN particle physicist and member of the team behind the discovery—invites us on a journey to the frontiers of our knowledge. Providing an accessible explanation of the history of particle physics and of concepts like quantum mechanics and relativity, Van Vulpen also outlines the quest to explain dark matter and seek out undiscovered dimensions of space.
