The Infinity Puzzle: From QED to the Higgs Boson and beyond
Rutherford and Bohr discovered the nuclear atom 100 years ago. Roughly 50 years ago the reason for this basic structure of matter was discovered by six people including Peter Higgs. This year the proof of this idea has come, due to discovery of Higgs's boson. What it is, why it matters, and why I tip it for next year's Nobel Prize - for chemistry - are themes in this pedagogic talk.
