Podcast - Nobel Prize for Higgs Boson

The 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded to Peter Higgs and François Englert for their work in predicting the particle that became known as the Higgs Boson.  The Higgs particle was proposed as the means by which other subatomic particles acquire mass.  Last year the existence of the Higgs boson was confirmed by the Large Hadron Collider in Europe, in a historic discovery.  To mark this award, we're re-issuing two of our recent feature interviews on the search for the Higgs Boson:  We spoke with Professor Frank Close in 2011 and Dr. Sean Carroll in 2012.
