Local researchers react to this year's Nobel Prize for Physics
Peter Higgs and Francois Englert of Belgium won the Nobel Prize for Physics this week. They predicted the existence of the so-called "God particle" - also known as the Higgs boson particle - that explains how elementary matter attained the mass to form stars and planets. While Higgs and Englert are getting the prize, researchers around the world have been working on this for years. Alan spoke with three of them here in Ottawa.
