    The Nobel Prize in Physics 2013

    http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/2013/

    [​IMG]

    The Higgs boson, or the "God particle," which was discovered last year, garnered two physicists the Nobel Prize in physics on Tuesday, but it didn't go to the scientists who detected it.Nearly 50 years ago, Francois Englert of Belgium and Peter Higgs of the United Kingdom had the foresight to predict that the particle existed.

    Higgs and Englert's theories behind the elusive Higgs boson explained what gives matter its mass.The universe is filled with Higgs bosons. As atoms and parts of atoms zoom around, they interact with and attract Higgs bosons, which cluster around them in varying numbers.Certain particles will attract larger clusters of Higgs bosons, and the more of them a particle attracts, the greater its mass will be.The explanation helped complete scientists' understanding of the nature of all matter.

    What is the Higgs boson and why is it important?

    The July 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson in the most powerful particle accelerator in the world, the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, has been billed as one of the biggest scientific achievements of the past 50 years.But the Royal Academy passed over the Higgs boson last year, to the surprise of many.The scientists, in the meantime, have confirmed their discovery and solidified its place in science.

    I have read several articles on the matter (I like to read about physics) and I still don't fully get the idea of the Higgs particle.. very hard to grasp

    They used Justin Bieber to explain the Higgs Boson...

    Just read this yesterday and chanced upon this thread today. Coincidence much. They deserve the accolade. Kudos to them!

    You can't see gravity either, doesn't make it irrelevant.

    But I get what you mean :)

    Okay so there's these Higgs Bosons flying around. Now what?

    Do I get my jetpack now? I want my fucking jetpack.
