Electrometallurgy, the science of producing metals from metallic ores through the use of electricity. It deals with both the use of electricity for various heating processes and the use of electricity to produce chemical changes (a process called electrolysis).
Who wants to reduce our complicated universe down to its simplest building blocks? A bunch of particle physicists, that's who. Why is the Higgs boson critical to that goal?
Some of the brightest minds in history have focused their intellects on the subject of light. Einstein even tried to imagine riding on a beam of light. We won't get that crazy, but we will shine a light on everything scientists have found so far.
