Peter Higgs was a British theoretical physicist who made significant contributions to our understanding of subatomic particles.

Peter Higgs predicted the Higgs Boson.

In the 1960s, Higgs proposed the existence of a field, now known as the Higgs field, and a particle associated with it, the Higgs boson. These concepts explained how fundamental particles acquire mass.

Professor Higgs was a Nobel Prize laureate in physics.   The discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN's Large Hadron Collider in 2012 confirmed Higgs' theory. He shared the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work.

Higgs was a professor at the University of Edinburgh and retired in 1996. He received numerous awards and recognitions throughout his career.

Sadly, Peter Higgs passed away on April 8, 2024, at the age of 94.  His legacy lives on through his groundbreaking work in particle physics.

The particle “Higgs Boson” is now known as God’s Particle.
