Congratulations to Peter W. Higgs and Francois Englert, winners of the 2013 Nobel Prize in Psychics!

Higgs and Englert were jointly awarded the prize yesterday for their work on a theory that offers an explanation for how the fundamental particles of the Universe acquire mass.

Nearly 50 years ago, they came up with the ‘God particle’ theory for sub-atomic mass – Last year, their work was confirmed after the discovery of the so-called Higgs particle — known also as the Higgs boson at a laboratory in Geneva.
