The Higgs Boson Anthology

The Higgs Boson Anthology book buzzr is here so you can enjoy higgs-related stories anytime you like:


All this week, we will be posting conrtributions to The Higgs Boson Anthology, in which writers from Year Zero and beyond react artistically to the search for the elusive boson. Scientists are the front line in the struggle to explain our world, but scientific knowledge belongs to everyone. It is the job of the artist to find a home in the collective conscious for new information.
