Product Description:

For particle physicists, the Higgs boson is the Holy Grail, and finding it just may answer one of the universe's great conundrums: how particles that have no mass can create matter that does. This entry in PBS's Independent Lens series visits with scientists who smash atoms with massive, underground particle accelerators as they hunt for the Higgs, and gets their perspective on what such a discovery might mean for the field as a whole.

Description by PBS Video:

Physicists at Fermilab, the world's most powerful particle accelerator laboratory, are closing in on one of the universe's best-kept secrets: why everything has mass. With the Tevatron, a four-mile underground particle accelerator, the scientists smash matter together at nearly the speed of light to find a particle theorized forty years ago by Scottish scientist Peter Higgs. Scour the subatomic world for the Higgs. Will the discovery happen'
