Remember all the talk about the Higgs Boson, or the "god particle", during the 4th of July? Still confused? I still had some questions until I viewed the video series by MinutePhysics. They do an AMAZING job - check it out!
There are some other science geek things in the video like quarks, hadrons, charm, strange etc. Trust me, you can safely ignore those and still get the point of the video! Don't be scared!
The only thing to be scared of is this comments. This is still YouTube so ... stay away from the comments!
