Re: Well done Peter

After so far having read just over half of Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time, Mr Higgs has my admiration.
Malala Yousafzai would be a worthy winner of a Nobel Peace prize. What an amazing person.

Re: Well done Peter

Prof Peter Higgs is currently at his press conference, about being awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics, being shown on BBC News Channel at the moment.
What a delightful, unassuming, brilliant person he is.
Very endearing.

Re: Well done Peter

I have to agree with one person's comment on the BBC news item.
Quote
If it were a bravery award then of course Malala would have won it, but it isn't, it's a peace award, and what the OPCW is doing is to try to eliminate weapons of mass destruction in the form of chemical weapons.
No doubt Malala wants peace, but her focus is education and equality in the face of intimidation, a worthy cause but it's not peace. Let's not confuse the two issues.

The latest episode of Radio 4's A Life Scientific  was devoted to an interview with Peter Higgs.
