Peter Ware Higgs, the physi­cist born on 29th of May 1929 in New­cas­tle upon Tyne, UK, to whom the Higgs boson owes its name, pub­lished the papers in 1964 which resulted in a 50 year long search for this elu­sive par­ti­cle.
The Higgs boson was finally dis­cov­ered with the world’s largest and most pow­er­ful par­ti­cle col­lider, the Large Hadron Col­lider (LHC) at the Euro­pean Orga­ni­za­tion for Nuclear Research CERN.
