As already announced, the Nobel Prize in Physics for 2013 has been awarded to François Englert and Peter W. Higgs “for the theory of how particles acquire mass” (see Press Release). They published the theory independently of each other 1964 in Physical Review Letters (see PRL). In 2012, physicists at the CERN found the particle predicted by Higgs and his colleagues. See a video about The basics of the Higgs boson at YouTube.
This is the title of an article published in Physics Today (February 2012) by Rachel Ivie and Casey Langer Tesfaye (Statistical Research Center of the American Institute of Physics).
“A newly completed survey of 15 000 physicists worldwide reveals that women physicists still do not have equal access to the career-advancing resources and opportunities enjoyed by their male colleagues.”
