Collider exhibition opens at Science Museum

Professor Peter Higgs has visited the Science Museum's 'Collider' exhibition in London, England. Visitors to the exhibition will see a theatre, video and sound art installation and artefacts from the Large Hadron Collider, providing a behind-the-scenes look at the CERN particle physics laboratory in Geneva. It touches on the discovery of the Higgs boson, or God particle, the realisation of scientist Peter Higgs’s theory.
