Do you have questions about the Higgs Boson discovery? Ask a physicist!

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

The Large Hadron Collider has just announced results strongly suggesting a potential detection of the Higgs Boson at approximately 135 times the mass of the proton. While this doesn't quite count as discovery yet, many physicists (including our own Dave Goldberg) are getting pretty confident that the Higgs is real, and that we now know what it looks like. In tomorrow's "Ask a Physicist" column, we'll do a Higgs roundup, taking your questions about the Higgs Boson, the Higgs Mechanism, and the Standard Model and answering as many of them as possible. Feel free to post your questions and comments here, or email Dave at
