Caption: Higgs mechanism equation on a blackboard. The Higgs mechanism explains how the Higgs field confers mass on other particles through their interaction with it. This interaction is mediated by the Higgs boson, a fundamental particle. The Higgs boson is required by many of the Grand Unified Theories which hope to explain three of the fundamental forces (electromagnetism and the weak and the strong nuclear forces) in a single unified theory. The discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs boson was announced by scientists at CERN (the European particle physics laboratory) on the 4th July 2012. Further analysis will be needed to confirm the results.
