Apparently, beside the non-experts like me, the physics community was mostly aware of the latest experiments results announced yesterday at CERN. But it’s really nice to see the buzz it’s making for a deeper view than the general public medias, check the following posts: Professor Matt Strassler post who celebrates the “day of the Higgs” or Cormac O’Rafferty who shares his commentaries to a Public radio. . I would also like to mention http://www.quantumdiaries.org/ which will forward you to even more others blogs may they be for experts and non-experts.
For the basics on the Higgs boson we recommend the following videos:What is a Higgs Boson? Featuring Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln.
and this very good What is all this fuss about the Higgs boson?
We obviously feel proud today since as you could read in our first post on particle accelerators, quite a few of our digitizers are used to control the beam in the different CERN accelerators.
