Higgs Boson scientist tipped to win Nobel Prize

Telegraph: Professor Higgs, a theoretical physicist at the University of Edinburgh, was one of a team of scientists to first describe a new type of particle, now known as the Higgs Boson, in 1964.

Earlier this year scientists at the Large Hadron Collider in Cern, on the French Swiss border, confirmed that they had found a particle that matches their theories.

Professor Stephen Hawking has already said he believes Professor Higgs deserves a Nobel Prize for his work.

Now it seems Professor Higgs and his colleagues may be rewarded for their groundbreaking work with a Nobel Prize in Physics this year.

Analysis of the impact made by scientists from around the world has suggested they are among those most likely to win.
