About This Episode

StarTalk Live’s celebration of the discovery of the Higgs boson on July 11, 2012 continues as CERN physicist Kyle Cranmer clues us in to what’s next in the investigation of the Higgs, now that it turns out it isn’t exactly what they thought it would be. Plus a lively Q&A session with the audience that includes Bill Nye the Science Guy bragging about the spacecraft he’s building and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson waxing poetic about why photons are beautiful. You’ll also learn what Super Symmetry is, and why it may hold the key to understanding Dark Matter. And of course, comic co-host Eugene Mirman and the other Particle Partiers, Scott Adsit and Sara Vowell, do their parts to keep the conversation as lively as a charged particle in the Large Hadron Collider.
