Officials at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) announce a new edition of their Large Hadron Collider pop-up book, featuring new facts, data and information about the Higgs Boson. The book, called Voyage to the Heart of Matter, will be published in London, on November 13. 

Compared to the previous version, the book contains a series of pop-up images detailing the tracks left by a decaying Higgs boson within the LHC's ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC Apparatus) detector, one of the four main scientific instruments in the world's largest particle accelerator.

A Voyage to the Heart of Matter contains 16 pop-ups crafted by paper engineer Anton Radevsky, one of which now deals exclusively with the discovery of boson that finally unifies the Standard Model of Particle Physics.

London was selected as the optimum location of publishing this revised edition of the book because the event will coincide with the launch of a major exhibition called Collider, to run at the London Science Museum for the next six months.
