Particle Physics Nobels!

This week the Nobel Prize for Physics was given to three theorists in our field: Nambu, Kobayashi, and Maskawa. If you want to read more about them, the science behind their discoveries, or the coverage of the award, I recommend this post on the Knight Science Journalism Tracker. You can also check out the post on Cosmic Variance, which discusses some of the controversy in the physics community over this award and has a link to a good explanation of spontaneous symmetry breaking.

  1. Paul says:

    Is it known how soon after the Big Bang do spontaneous broken symmetries occur? or Is the Big Bang a result of a broken symmetry?

  2. Ayodele Adebayo says:

    It’s a good way to encourage particle physicists and more especially that the LHC experiments are nearby.
