Season 8 Episode 30 | 15m 29s | Video has closed captioning.

The Standard Model of particle physics is arguably the most successful theory in the history of physics. It predicts the results of experiments with a numerical precision unmatched by any other branch of science, and it does so almost unfailingly. The theory is encapsulated in a single equation known as the Standard Model Lagrangian. We’re going to explain to you how it works!
