This is how the first of two pieces on the Higgs particle appeared in the print edition of the paper. Jonathan Corum wrote the “script” for both the print version and the web version of this job, and he designed the print version;  Xaquín G.V., Alicia de Santis and Josh Williams did the smashing (literally!) animation, which will be posted here shortly. Here’s a link to Jonathan’s site with some extra detail.
