# Higgs Boson – A Cartoon Explanation

## Higgs boson

So what is it? Its the elementary particle that gives mass to the other particles. The theory explains that the Higgs field permeates the entire universe like a river and this interacts with the particle and gives mass to it. Even you feel it now! The heavily affected particle is considered to have a higher mass than a hardly affected particle.

Here is a video that enlightened me more about Higgs! (Hope the universities could follow this kinda methods to explain the entire course of study for the students and make learning more enthusiastic and fun rather than boring blackboard classes!) Or simply The Geek Way :)
