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.

Spokespersons for CMS and ATLAS, the two biggest experiments at the Large Hadron Collider, announced yesterday that both experiments have found strong hints in their data of something that could be a low-mass Higgs boson – and added that they are well-situated to give a more definitive answer by the end of next year. But, as pointed out by SLAC physicist and ATLAS collaboration member Charlie Young, the salt shaker is still on the table.
