Celebrating the Impact of the Higgs Boson Discovery

Peter Higgs, the theoretical physicist who predicted the existence of the Higgs boson, has died at the age of 94. Higgs is best known for his pioneering work in predicting the masses of subatomic particles. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in physics in 2013 alongside Belgian physicist François Englert for their 1960s work predicting the existence of a particle that, by interacting with other particles, gives them mass.
