Physicists who inspired Soudan lab win Nobel Prize

misc.jpgThe scientists who first theorized about the Higgs boson particle, the so-called (usually by non-physicists) “God Particle,” will share this year’s Nobel Prize for Physics.

Normally that’s not something you’d see touted here on this unusual regional website, but it so happens that there is a sophisticated laboratory located deep beneath the Iron Range at the Soudan Underground Mine doing related research right now. It’s amazing to think of the many ways one seemingly unaware place like the Iron Range can intersect with a greater world.
