HIGGS10: CELEBRATIONS OPEN

To celebrate 10 years from the announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson, the INFN community is taking part in the celebrations with several events, collected on a dedicated website. On July 4, INFN social media pages published a video with the memories of the discovery told by INFN researchers who took part in it, while on July 5, CERN's event dedicated to the new LHC collisions was broadcasted on INFN YouTube channel. To mark the 10-year anniversary, the first episode of the podcast "Traces. Lexicon of a Discovery" was published. The podcast, starting with everyday words that are also present in the language of physics, will recount the discovery of the Higgs boson in a series of episodes released over the summer. The celebrations will continue until the end of 2022 with other events and initiatives: find out more on higgs10.infn.it.
