Higgs Boson For The Layman

Yesterday afternoon, I was looking for a science-obsessed TC writer to take on the Higgs Boson story. Instead, I got an extremely elegant Yammer summation of the discovery news from TechCrunch executive assistant Greg Barto. It’s pretty self-explanatory.

When I asked him later via text where he learned about physics, Greg said, “My dad got me into it as a kid. Also been a fan of Steven Hawking and read his books. This has been on the verge of discovery for like five years so I’ve been following it.”
