Higgs, Higgs, Hooray!

10 years of research with the Higgs particle

The Higgs turns 10 years. On July 4, 2012, CERN announced the discovery of the Higgs boson. It was the last missing piece of the puzzle in the Standard Model of particle physics, which describes the known matter in the universe.

Research institutions in Germany and around the world are celebrating the birthday of the Higgs particle this year.

The Max Planck Institute for Physics is also taking part!

Our event, organized jointly with the Cluster of Excellence ORIGINS, will take place on July 4 at 6:00 p.m. - more details will be available on this page soon.
