Nobel prize-winning physicist Peter Higgs, who proposed the existence of the so-called “God particle” that helped clarify how matter shaped after the Large Bang, has died at age 94, the College of Edinburgh mentioned on Tuesday, April 9. The college, the place Higgs was emeritus professor, mentioned he died Monday “peacefully at dwelling following a brief sickness.”

Higgs predicted the existence of a brand new particle − the so-called Higgs boson − in 1964. However it could be nearly 50 years earlier than the particle’s existence could possibly be confirmed on the Massive Hadron Collider.

Higgs’ idea associated to how subatomic particles which are the constructing blocks of matter get their mass. This theoretical understanding is a central a part of the so-called Commonplace Mannequin, which describes the physics of how the world is constructed.

Edinburgh College mentioned his groundbreaking 1964 paper demonstrated how “elemental particles achieved mass by means of the existence of a brand new sub-atomic particle,” which turned often called the Higgs boson.

In 2012, in one of many greatest breakthroughs in physics in many years, scientists at CERN, the European Group for Nuclear Analysis, introduced that they’d lastly discovered a Higgs boson utilizing the $10 billion particle collider in-built a 27-kilometer tunnel underneath the Swiss-French border.

Higgs gained the 2013 Nobel Prize in Physics for his work, alongside Francois Englert of Belgium, who independently got here up with the identical idea. Edinburgh College Vice Chancellor Peter Mathieson mentioned Higgs, who was born within the Scottish capital, was “a outstanding particular person – a really gifted scientist whose imaginative and prescient and creativeness have enriched our data of the world that surrounds us.” “His pioneering work has motivated hundreds of scientists, and his legacy will proceed to encourage many extra for generations to come back.”
