“On the effort to isolate the Higgs Boson, quote, ‘It has led to a joke in physics circles now: the Higgs Boson has not been discovered yet, but its mass is 125 billion electron volts.’ (Laughs.) It’s funny, because two independent particle accelerators had correlating bumps in their datasets! It works on so many levels — and in so many dimensions. (Beat.) Well, I guess you had to be there.
And simultaneously not be there.”
