'God Particle' Wins Nobel Physics Prize

Francois Englert of Belgium and Peter Higgs of Britain won the Nobel Physics Prize on Tuesday for the discovery of the “God particle”, the Higgs Boson that explains why mass exists, the jury said.

The pair were honoured for “the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle,” the jury said.
