Diving into the particle that 'won' the Nobel Prize in Physics
The Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded Tuesday to François Englert and Peter W. Higgs, the theorists who in 1964 predicted the existence of what is known as the Higgs boson, the particle that gives mass to the universe. The particle was finally confirmed earlier this year.
In 2012, NOVA explored the nature of the Higgs boson and what such a particle means for physics.
