    Yep, for their contributions with the Higgs-boson particle.

    EDIT: I don't wanna brag, but in my mind, I did call it before it happened. I would have bet that the ppl who'd win will have to be in relation to the higgs-boson particle. Too big a discovery.

    Re: Nobel Prize For Physics 2013:

    Despite the early rejection of his theory he never gave up hope and was rewarded 50 years later.
    One day, when Peter Higgs was a 34-year-old physicist studying at the University of Edinburgh, he came up with an idea.

    It was a bold one, an ambitious one, and an extremely complex one. He wrote two papers about it — pencil scribbled on paper. The second paper was turned down; the editors said the theory was "of no obvious relevance to physics." His colleagues even told him he did not grasp the fundamentals of the field.

    Fifty years later, 84-year-old Higgs achieved the Nobel Prize in Physics for that one idea, on Tuesday morning.
    Peter Higgs Never Imagined That He'd Live to See This Day

    Apparently he has no idea he's won. Gone hiking in the Middle of Nowhere, Scotland and is off the grid.
