The Higgs boson has now been discovered, and it's old news that Peter Higgs has taken a Nobel prize -- but just what IS this tiny, rare particle? Find out about it through the videos on richannel.org, which include this animation, which playfully explores the Large Hadron Collider through a crack squad of protons, who dutifully wing themselves around the central collider tubes to perform experimental collisions -

New Scientist magazine has a bevy of clearly-written articles on all aspects of the Higgs boson here - to read some you need to subscribe, but many of the shorter ones are free to access.
