The Hunt for the Higgs Particle

14 October 2013

On 8 October 2013, Peter Higgs and Francois Englert were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work on the ‘mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles’. Just 6 days later Jim Baggott explained the significance of this work and of the recent discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN in July 2012 to an audience gathered for the Pi-symposium, organised by Fri Tanke (the Swedish publisher of Higgs) at the Hotel Rival in Stockholm.
