This is science.

Stanford Professor Andrei Linde celebrates physics breakthrough

 

Everyone. This is science. This is the why we do science. This is the joy of science. We do it both to understand how the universe works and how we work, but there is a much more human element that is missed way too often. We do science for moments like this. These moments of revelation are what keep us going through the hard slough of trying to decipher the universe or the brain. I hope that science is portrayed with this human more often. I am happy to hear that there is a documentary about the discovery of the Higgs Boson that aimed at capturing both the science and the human element of working to discover the Higgs called ‘Particle Fever’. It is playing in theaters now. Hear about the documentary in this Science Friday podcast:http://www.sciencefriday.com/segment/03/07/2014/-particle-fever-captures-the-excitement-of-the-higgs-discovery.html. Honor the scientists that do the science, not just the scientific discovery!
