MOSCOW, February 5. /ITAR-TASS/. Dozens of representatives of the world’s mass media community have named Nobel laureate, British physicist Peter Higgs, scientist of 2013.
The results of the 2013 World Rankings based on a poll of representatives of 175 world news agencies and mass media were made public at ITAR-TASS on Wednesday.
Higgs, who predicted the existence of what is commonly referred to as God’s Particle (also known as the Higgs boson), collected 131 votes out of the 175 polled mass media chiefs. Also high in the rankings are Belgium’s Francois Englert, who separately from Higgs predicted the existence of the boson back in 1964, US cytologist Randy Sheckman and German-American biochemist Thomas Sudhof, who received the 2013 Nobel Prize in medicine.
