On July 4, 2012, scientists at CERN used the word "discovery" to describe the results of experiments designed to prove the existence of the Higgs boson, a particle that gives mass to the universe. Host Marco Werman of PRI's The World gets a down-to-earth layman's analogy for what it means to say that a particle "gives mass," finds out why it's called the "God particle," and hears from a member of one of the teams that found the new particle, Jordan Nash of Imperial College London, on what this means for him personally and for physics.
