The “Higgs boson” discovery announced at CERN just a few months ago resulted from high-energy collisions of protons, the particles that comprise the nucleus of hydrogen atoms. We trace the history of our knowledge of the proton, from its early identification as a fundamental particle, through the discovery that it was in fact made up of more elementary “quark” constituents, and finally to its role in the production of new particles at the CERN Large Hadron Collider.
