Resumen:
Unraveling the mechanism of electroweak symmetry breaking and the generation of mass of elementary particles has been one of the highest priorities in particle physics research over the last 50 years, with the elusive Higgs boson being a center piece of many theoretical constructions. Following the discovery of a Higgs-like particle in proton-proton collisions at the energy frontier at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC), 2012 has become a landmark year in Particle Physics where apparently the end of this particular road has been reached. Or is it the beginning? We will discuss the significance of this discovery, how we got there, and most importantly, what lies ahead.
