Morgan Freeman Hosts Fundamental Physics Prize Ceremony
By: Bridget Brady
Earlier today in Geneva, Switzerland, Morgan Freeman presented world-renowned scientists at CERN the coveted Fundamental Physics Prize for their work researching the Higgs Boson.
It's been a big week for the team at CERN. On March 14th, the physicists confirmed that the subatomic particle discovered last summer definitely matches the characteristics of the God Particle. While their data confirms its existence, CERN physicists agree that there is a great deal left to learn from this particle.
"The preliminary results with the full 2012 data set are magnificent and to me it is clear that we are dealing with a Higgs boson though we still have a long way to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is," said CMS spokesperson Joe Incandela.
But before the CERN team gets back to work, it's time to celebrate their achievements. Watch as Morgan Freeman tours the CERN facilities before the ceremony!
