For 40 years, physicists worked to identify the Higgs particle, which would help them to better understand the formation of the universe. That quest is the subject of the documentary Particle Fever. And, as you may remember, that discovery almost happened in North Texas.
Particle Fever played at the recent USA Film Festival and opens Friday at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. Particle physicists from SMU and UTA will discuss the film at the Angelika following the 8 p.m. screenings on Friday and Saturday.
