‘Particle Fever’ Captures the Excitement of the Higgs Discovery
Physicists David Kaplan and Mark Levinson knew that when the Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, Switzerland finally turned on, it would change physics—so they set out to capture the historic moment on film. Their documentary, Particle Fever, is a behind-the-scenes look at the scientific process with a big emotional payoff: the discovery of the elusive Higgs boson.
