Higgs Toy Makes its KU Debut!

Friday, August 15, 2014

A new Higgs Boson plush doll (above) was developed by the KU Quarked!team of physicists, museum educators and designers, aided by KU Innovation and Collaboration. It is now available online at the KU Bookstore and at the KU Natural History Museum store. The Higgs Boson is a sub-atomic particle. The six-inch doll ($12) comes with printed information about the Higgs field and its importance, i.e., without it atoms and molecules would not be able to form, and the world of matter as we know it would not exist. So, BUY ONE NOW and KEEP the UNIVERSE ALIVE!
