On 8 October 2013, the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has awarded Peter Higgs and François Englert with the Nobel Prize for Physics for their contribution to understand the mechanism at the origin of the mass of subatomic particles, which was confirmed experimentally on July 4th, 2012, after the observations carried out by the ATLAS and CSM experiments at the LHC in Geneva.

But behind the discovery of the Higgs boson there is one of the largest and most powerful machines ever built, which involves dozens of institutions, hundreds of researchers, substantial funding, years of study and a mass of data produced never seen so far: an example of Big Science.

What are the numbers of the search for God particle? An infographic to show the numbers of the LHC accelerator's work.

The Higgs boson and the Nobel Prize for Physics 2013 will be discussed at the event sponsored by Scienceonthenet and Caffè-Scienza - scheduled on October 24th, at the Milan Urban Center - Galleria Vittorio Emanuele: Bosons and galaxies : Milan celebrates the Nobel Prize in 2013 for physics.
