Never-before-seen footage from internal CMS meetings!

Would you like to take a sneak peek into life at CMS? Here are some short clips from two crucial internal meetings from June 2012, right before we announced the discovery of a new Higgs-like boson.

The first meeting was the "Higgs to two photons" channel's unblinding, where the CMS Collaboration saw the results of a "blind" analysis for the first time. Read more on this procedure:

The second meeting was an approval talk of the same channel with a "top-up", i.e. the addition of new data freshly collected by the CMS detector.

We had similar meetings for the other Higgs channels, and the final part of the video shows the CMS Spokesperson announcing the discovery of the Higgs-like particle at a CERN seminar. Read more about the discovery:
