Abstract: In 2012 the CMS and ATLAS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN made the remarkable discovery of the Higgs Boson. In this talk we'll explore what the Higgs is and how it was discovered, as well as the unique role that it plays in the origin of mass in the universe. The talk will conclude with a discussion of some of the possibilities for what discoveries might be next for these remarkable experiments.
