Scientist Peter Higgs, who theorized the Higgs boson, dies at 94.  

Nobel prize-winning physicist Peter Higgs, who hypothesized the Higgs boson, died.  

He died at home in Edinburgh on Monday. Higgs, 94, won the 2013 Nobel Prize for physics for his 1964 discovery that the boson gave particles their mass and bound the universe together.  

In 2012, physicists at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern in Switzerland proved his theory, sharing the Nobel prize with Belgian theoretical physicist François Englert, whose 1964 work also contributed to the discovery.  

A Royal Society member and Companion of Honour, Higgs spent most of his career at Edinburgh University, which named the Higgs Centre for Theoretical Physics after him in 2012.  

University principal Prof. Peter Mathieson said: “Peter Higgs was a remarkable individual – a truly gifted scientist whose vision and imagination have enriched our knowledge of the world.  

His pioneering work has inspired thousands of scientists, and his legacy will inspire future generations.

Prof Fabiola Gianotti, Cern's director general and former leader of the Atlas experiment, which discovered the Higgs particle in 2012, said: “Besides his outstanding contributions to particle physics, Peter was a very special person, a man of rare modesty, a great teacher and someone who explained physics in a very simple and profound  

He's crucial to Cern's history and accomplishments. I'm devastated and shall miss him.”
