Scientists at the CERN research centre in Switzerland welcome the news that a new subatomic particle could be the Higgs boson, the basic building block of the universe. Spokesman for one of the two teams hunting for the Higgs particle, Joe Incandela, makes the announcement. Footage courtesy of Reuters.

Galileo's investigation of the pendulum played a role in the evolution of science.
He performed some of the first experiments while discovering the relationship among length, mass and displacement.
If you are teaching the scientific method, the pendulum is a good project to start with.
Galileo probably gained insight into many issues around motion from his investigation of the pendulum.
The video also mentions issues with the church and academia.
The Large Hadron Collider is the largest and most complex scientific instrument ever built and the highest energy particle accelerator in the world.
The accelerator is located 100 m underground and runs through both French and Swiss territory. ( 27km circumference)
Year 2008 September 10th, marks the culmination of 20 years of work by over 8000 scientists thousands of engineers, technicians and support staff from over 80 different countries.
some critics say that this could create a black hole and suck up the entire world. but many say that even if a black hole is created it will vanish within a millionth of a second..

The LHC: or how the world's largest experiment can investigate matter's smallest constituents.
Public lecture on 21 June 2007 at The Royal Society, London.
Go here if you want to see the lecture with slides:
By Dr. Tara Shears, Royal Society University Research Fellow, University of Liverpool.
Deep beneath the Swiss countryside, final touches are being made to the world's largest piece of scientific equipment the Large Hadron Collider (or LHC for short). The LHC is the most powerful particle accelerator ever built. It is capable of recreating the very energetic conditions last seen in the universe a billionth of a second after the Big Bang, and allows particle physicists to study the fundamental ingredients of matter that the universe was formed of at the time. Amazingly, it will do this 40 million times a second, and use enormous high tech experiments to record what happens.
Why would we want to go to such lengths to explore the structure of matter? In this lecture, Tara Shears will discuss how the LHC will help scientists learn more about the nature of matter and expand the frontiers of our knowledge further than ever.
Tara Shears is a particle physicist and Royal Society University Research Fellow at the University of Liverpool. Since obtaining her PhD in 1995 she has worked on experiments at CERN, the European Centre for Particle Physics, in Switzerland, and at Fermilab in America. Her research interests focus on the properties of bottom quarks and the light they may throw on new fundamental particles and interactions.

The LHC has excluded the higgs boson's mass range between 141-476 GeV, also next year it will look at the lower end of the spectrum to hopefully find or exclude the higgs all together.
