The prestigious award goes to Francois Englert and Peter Higgs, who a half-century ago independently proposed what became the Higgs boson, discovered in 2012.
Caltech's Mark Wise on why researchers are on the chase for this elusive subatomic particle.
Scientists generate a musical picture of so-called "God particle" by attaching musical notes to each data point.
The scientists already did all the hard work. Now you can just sit back and enjoy the Higgs boson in wristwatch form.
Researchers can't say for certain that a particle they discovered is the so-called "God particle," but the information they have "strongly indicates" it is.
A Fermilab theoretical physicist suggests that qualities of the "God particle" show an "alternate" universe could easily "spread out and destroy us."
Two research papers on the hunt for the "God particle" pass muster with peers and yield an authors' list of Biblical proportions.
A behind-the-scenes look as scientists find a long-sought subatomic particle that's key to furthering humanity's understanding of the universe.
Scientists at CERN say they've almost certainly located the elusive particle, which would confirm the standard model of physics. The evidence is "very strong, very solid."
Boffins at CERN have identified a particle consistent with the elusive Higgs boson -- it's a fine day for science.
