Much has been written and talked about the possibility of finding the Higgs particle at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva Switzerland. Recent press releases from CERN, on behalf of the ATLAS and CMS experiments, suggest that they are very close to finding it, although that isn't certain yet. What is this Higgs particle? Why would we spend so much time and money building the LHC and its experiments to try to find it, and why are so many Particle physicists so excited about finding it.
