Nobelova Englertu in Higgsu

Letošnjo nobelovo nagrado za fiziko si delita teoretična fizika Englert in Higgs, in sicer za

"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, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN's Large Hadron Collider"
Torej nagrada nekako tako za teorijo, kot tudi za samo eksperimentalno odkritje Higgsovega bozona.

Dodatek: Zabavna zgodba o proslavi včeraj na NYU v NewYorkerju in o tem, kako je Kyle Cranmerjev študent prvi videl kombinacijo signala 5 sigma.
