Who would you ask to explain the Higgs Boson Particle (in 2 minutes)? Peter Higgs himself!

Ok, two minutes sounds too little time to explain something so complex as the Higgs Boson but this is a task fine for Peter Higgs himself.

In this video [BBC], Higgs describes the particle and what it does in under 120 seconds. But without doubt the best bit is when physicist and radio presenter Jim Al-Khalili ask Higgs: “Could you encapsulate that description in, say, thirty seconds?”

“No,” comes the declarative answer.

It took a bit more than 30 seconds…
