THE ATOM SMASHERS
They have one last chance to make the discovery of a lifetime
A group of obsessed American physicists leads the international search for the Higgs Boson—a particle so important to the understanding of how the universe is held together that it has been dubbed the “god particle” and the “holy grail” of physics. Using an aging machine and facing a government and culture often at odds with science, the physicists race against a far more powerful European accelerator that threatens to upstage both them and the entire U.S. science program.
Will they find the Higgs in time?
