Peter Elmer of Princeton University explains how the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is a Higgs boson factory, and why hunting through its data is like looking for a needle in a haystack. Elmer is the principal investigator on the $25 million NSF award to create the Institute for Research and Innovation in Software for High-Energy Physics (IRIS-HEP), which will develop software solutions for the data challenges presented by future upgrades to the LHC.
