The Goddamn particle and the prophets of CERN: Some thoughts on the Higgs Boson

Peter Higgs, (born 29 May 1929) is a British theoretical physicist and emeritus professor at the University of Edinburgh. He is best known for his 1960s proposal of broken symmetry in electroweak theory, explaining the origin of mass of particles. This so-called Higgs mechanism predicts the existence of a new particle the Higgs boson. CERN announced on July 4th, 2012 that they had experimentally established the existence of a Higgs-like boson.
