The Higgs Boson and Paul Dirac: Graham Farmelo, Peter Higgs
Two of the giants of modern physics were educated in Bristol’s schools. Paul Dirac, who co-discovered quantum mechanics and predicted the existence of anti-matter, always regarded the excellent education he was given in Bristol – in physics, mathematics and engineering – as crucial to his career. Dirac’s success inspired the young Peter Higgs, who attended Cotham School, and later predicted the particle now named after him and the subject of worldwide attention.
Graham Farmelo, author of The Strangest Man: The Life of Paul Dirac is in discussion with Peter Higgs and Robin McKie, science editor of The Observer.
