Higgs Round-Up

The 2013 Nobel Prize in physics will go to Peter Higgs and Francois Englert, for their prediction of the existence of the Higgs boson. Experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN announced the discovery of the Higgs in the summer of 2012.

The discovery of the Higgs boston was a big freakin' deal for physics (and in the long run, for all of humanity). We've talked about the Higgs and the LHC a lot around here, so if you need a refresher as to why these things are so important (and so cool), check out some of the links below.
