Summary
"A vivid account of what the process of discovery was really like for an insider."—Peter Higgs"Butterworth is an insider's insider. His narrative seethes with insights on the project's science, technology and 'tribes,' as well as his personal (and often amusing) journey as a frontier physicist."—Nature The discovery of the Higgs boson has brought us a giant step closer to understanding how our universe works. But before the Higgs was found, its existence was hotly debated. Even Peter Higgs, who first pictured it, did not expect to see proof within his lifetime. The quest to find the Higgs would ultimately require perhaps the most ambitious experiment in human history. Jon Butterworth was there—a leading physicist on the ATLAS project at the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland. In Most Wanted Particle, he gives us the first insider account of the hunt for the Higgs, and of life at the collider..
