Minute Physics did a three video series to explain about the Higgs Boson, any why it matters. And in case you don’t know about Minute Physics already, and are a geek, you should visit the Minute Physics YouTube channel, and subscribe to it immediately. The channel has several videos explaining complex physics theories, in a very simple manner, in around a minute. These videos were all around 3 minutes though.
Part 1. What is the Higgs Boson?
Part 2. What is mass?
Part 3. How to Discover a Particle
Did watching these make you understand the Higgs boson better?
