Nobel in Physics: A long time in the making

Nearly 50 years of experiments and billions of dollars in equipment followed the prediction of the Higgs mechanism by theoretical physicists in 1964. Ulrich Heintz and Meenakshi Narain, two of the particle physicists at Brown University who worked on experiments at Fermilab and at CERN, note that the successful search for the Higgs was carried on by thousands of researchers.

A research tool for the 21st century “Nature made the Higgs boson massive enough that we needed the Large Hadron Collider to produce it in the laboratory. Staggeringly high energies were needed so that we could confirm by experiment that the Higgs boson indeed exists.”
