IN 2012, CERN WAS THE SITE OF ONE OF THE GREATEST DISCOVERIES OF THE 21ST CENTURY, THAT OF THE HIGGS BOSON
This particle was the last missing element of the Standard Model theory, which describes the behaviour of all visible matter and how the particles that make it up interact with each other in the Universe. The power of the LHC and its detectors made it possible to confirm the existence of this particle. The Nobel Prize was subsequently awarded to two of the theoretical physicists who had postulated its existence as early as 1964, François Englert and Peter Higgs.
