Scientists win Nobel for Higgs Boson
Posted: Wed, Oct 9, 2013, 7:03 AM ET (1103 GMT)
Two physicists won the Nobel Prize for Physics on Tuesday for promulgating the existence of a particle that gives other particles mass. Peter Higgs and Francois Englert won the prize for separate papers they published in the 1960s that proposed the existence of that particle, later called the Higgs Boson, linked to the existence of a field that gives other particles mass in the standard model of particle physics. After decades of effort, physicists at CERN announced in 2012 that they had detected the Higgs Boson at the predicted energy in experiments performed at CERN's Large Hadron Collider.
