              Higgs Discovery: The Power of Empty Space

              Higgs Discovery: The Power of Empty Space (Paperback)

              By Randall, Lisa

              On July 4th, 2012, one of physics' most exhilarating results was announced: an entirely new kind of particle had been discovered at the Large Hadron Collider.
