The Nobel Prize for physics has been awarded to Peter Higgs of Edinburgh and Francois Englert of Brussels. Frank Close's book The Infinity Puzzle told the story of the fifty-year quest for the Higgs Boson. The talk, suitable for undergraduates and faculty, gives a pedagogic description of what it's all about and will be a celebration of the climax of this wonderful adventure.
