Our aim in this review article is to present the applications of Connes’ noncommutative geometry to elementary particle physics. Whereas the ex-isting literature is mostly focused on a mathematical audience, in this article we introduce the ideas and concepts from noncommutative geometry using physicists ’ terminology, gearing towards the predictions that can be derived from the noncommutative description. Focusing on a light package of non-commutative geometry (so-called ‘almost-commutative manifolds’), we shall introduce in steps: electrodynamics, the electroweak model, culminating in the full Standard Model. We hope that our approach helps in understanding the role noncommutative geometry could play in describing particle physics models, eventually unifying them with Einstein’s (geometrical) theory of grav-ity.
