Soundbytes from the interviews to Peter Higgs, Francois Englert, Carl Hagen and Gerald Guralnik, recorded at CERN on the announcement of the latest results from ATLAS and CMS on the Higgs boson searches.
CERN Press release: CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson http://cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2012/PR17.12E.html
CMS and ATLAS present their results, showing evidence of a new particle of a mass and signature identifying it as the Higgs boson. But more research is needed to ensure this is exactly the boson predicted by the Standard Model.
John Ellis,theoretical physicist, answers the question "What is the Higgs boson?" in preparation for the press conference following the seminar on LHC 2012 results on the Higgs boson search, due on July 4 2012 at CERN. For more details: http://cern.ch/press/PressReleases/Releases2012/PR16.12E.html
