Theorists Peter Higgs and Francois Englert began working on the Higgs Theory in the 1960s, and after more than half a century of tireless research, experimentation, and technological advancements, The Nobel Prize for physics was bestowed upon them this morning for discovery of the Higgs boson, or “God Particle”, a scientific energy component that gives mass to all physical matter.
A press conference was held at Purdue-Calumet today to congratulate one of the many researchers who have also researched the theory in order to discover its existence. Purdue-Calumet professor, Dr. Neeti Parashar says this discovery is the crowning achievement of the century.
Dr. Parashar says this discovery for humans' understanding of the basic building blocks of life, energy and the natural universe is monumental—and fundamental—because if the Higgs didn't exist, we would not exist.
Dr. Parashar and her team of researchers were also congratulated via Skype by Purdue-Calumet Chancellor, Thomas Keon, and they look forward to contining research on the Higgs Field and hope to discover different types of “God Particles” that energetically shape the world around us.
