Earlier this summer, the ATLAS and CMS particle-physics experiments at the Large Hadron Collider announced the discovery of a new particle consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson, which constitutes the keystone of the Standard Model of particle physics. To explain the importance of this discovery, a short history of the theory behind it, accessible to the lay public, will be presented along with an overview of the means by which this result was obtained and the exciting questions that remain to be answered.
