This World Leaders Forum program features a moderated panel discussion with Columbia physicists and leading science journalists on potential development that could change our fundamental assumptions about the physical world: the possible experimental verification of the existence of the Higgs boson, a long hypothesized particle thought responsible for endowing other elementary particles with mass. The panel discussion will be followed by a moderated question and answer session with the audience.
