As you probably know by now, scientists at CERN finally confirmed the existence of the Higgs Boson (aka God) particle, or at least something which is a lot like what a Higgs would look like if we knew what one looked like. Confused already? That’s because particle physics is confusing. Fortunately for those of us who have trouble getting our heads around any physics that isn’t being explained by Professor Brian Cox and a pile of stones, the chaps at Minute Physics have produced this short video in order to explain it all in simple terms.

There’s a couple of follow up videos in the pipeline so you may want to go ahead and subscribe to their channel.
