NOBEL PRIZE: ISU Researchers Helped Prove Physics Theory
The work of a group of ISU researchers helped earn two of their peers the Nobel Prize.
Francois Englert and Peter Higgs were awarded the prize for physics Tuesday.
In 1964, they two described a theoretical atomic partial, the Higgs boson, sometimes referred as the “God particle.”
Last year that theory was proven true during an experiment that included ten researchers from Iowa State using the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland.
