What's (the) Matter?, A Show on Elementary Particle Physics
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 113

Description:
We present the screenplay of a physics show on particle physics, by the Physikshow of Bonn University. The show is addressed at non-physicists aged 14+ and communicates basic concepts of elementary particle physics including the discovery of the Higgs boson in an entertaining fashion.
