It has nothing to do with statistics, but the Higgs Boson story has been the most exciting news I’ve heard in a while. Physics was always my favorite of the sciences, and it’s nice to see hard science reporting make major headlines.
Thanks to my science/math geek cred, I’ve gotten asked by a few people to break down what the big deal is, so I’ve been looking for a good, simple, comprehensive resource to point people to. PhD comics apparently was all over this back in April, and I’m posting it here because I like it. Yay for science!
