US Scientists Celebrate Nobel Prize for Higgs Discovery

The Nobel Prize in physics has been awarded to theorists Peter Higgs and Francois Englert to recognize their work developing the theory of what is now known as the Higgs field. U.S. scientists played a significant role in advancing their theory and confirming it with the discovery of the Higgs boson.
