“A modern voyage of discovery.” —Frank Wilczek, Nobel Laureate, author of The Lightness of BeingTh e Higgs boson is one of our era’s most fascinating scientic frontiers and the key to understanding why mass exists. Th e most recent book on the subject,The God Particle, was a bestseller. Now, Caltech physicist Sean Carroll documents the doorway that is opening—a fter billions of dollars and the e fforts of thousands of researchers at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland—into the mind-boggling world of dark matter. The Particle at the End of the Universe has it all: money and politics, jealousy and self-sacrice, history and cutting-edge physics—all grippingly told by a rising star of science writing.
