4 July 2022 marks the 10th anniversary of one of the most celebrated scientific breakthroughs of the 21st century – the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.

ILC NewsLine presents our 10th anniversary of the Higgs discovery with our Higgs boson stories written 10 years ago.

The Higgs and the ILC by Barry Barish (5 July 2012)

The Higgs mechanism is a completely new phenomenon in particle physics and its discovery will open up a totally new and very important area of research.  To illustrate the potential power of the ILC to study Higgs physics, I give two examples of how the ILC can shed light on this new physics.

The Higgs is Different by Jonathan Bagger (5 July 2012)

But the Higgs does much more.  Its discovery will mark a triumph of physics, and as with any discovery, it will open the door to a whole new range of questions. (Read full story)

In front of the door to a new world by Sakue Yamada (26 July 2012)

Knowing the mass of the Higgs-like particle helps us decide where to set the ILC energy to study the new world. The discovery excites us not only because it may fill the last hole of the particle chart of the Standard Model but because of this possibility. The Higgs particle is totally different from other members and opens the door to the next development. The mass tells where the door is. (Read full story)
