Seven years, 500 hours of footage capture 'Particle Fever'

Theoretical physicist David Kaplan spent seven years carefully documenting the research at the Large Hadron Collider. The documentary "Particle Fever" captures the thrill of discovery, as well as the stress, disappointment and fear they felt when the collider went offline for months. For Kaplan, it was a struggle to keep filming, never knowing when they would find the Higgs boson.
