about

One thing physicists are looking for at CERN is the Higgs Boson. Why is it important? An acoustic track with lush strings.

lyrics

there's a .... Standard Model of Particle Physics
And you'll find that in it
is a set of elementary particles

Of all of these
there's still one to be seen
We need to know if it exists and so we seek

Its called the Higgs-Boson
And the hunt for it goes on
sighting it would confirm Standard Theory

And so to find out if
We needed got our wish
For a particle accelerator of high energy

Its not just amazing physics
there's engineering to go with it
miles and miles of precisey placed machines

Its a huge facility
Magnets accelerate proton beams
into each other at high velocities

Neutrons and protons are
hadrons, and when they go fast
and collide it's hoped the debris will reveal

a Higgs-Boson to be seen
confirming Standard Theory
and provide hints on supersymmetry
Chorus

Thats why they look inside a, Large Hadron Collider, to find a, son of a particle gun
Set sail, cos we've got to know, set sail, cos we've got to show, head for CERN in Switzerland

The small particles of fast moving matter / when they collide will shatter / the bits inside will leave tracks as they scatter
Large amounts of data will abound / and will the Higgs Boson be found? / Or will the Standard model be left in tatters?
