We demonstrate that the Higgs boson can be discovered at the large hadron collider in new physics events using boosted kinematics, b-tagging and jet substructure. This method superbly identifies the lightest Higgs boson in the minimal supersymmetric standard model. Two case studies are considered where Higgs is produced in association with superpartners that decay to a light gravitino, however generalizations to other spectra and models is anticipated. In some circumstances, discovery of the lightest Higgs is possible before conventional search strategies uncover convincing evidence.
