    Documentary follows 'Particle Fever' surrounding Higgs boson discovery
    You can't see the Higgs boson, but you can watch its discovery. Scientists crowd around dozens of monitors as they collect data from experiments using a looping 17-mile underground tunnel and equipment likened to a five-story Swiss watch. They worry what...
  • Review: 'Particle Fever' a smashingly captivating look at a big idea

    Watching a film won't make you smarter, but if there ever was one that could, it would be "Particle Fever," a movie so mind-bending you can almost feel your brain cells growing as you're watching it. As directed by Mark Levinson, a physicist turned...
