The Nobel Prize for Physics is going to the scientists who first proposed the idea of the "Higgs Boson" particle.
The Nobel Prize in Physics makes a nice lifetime achievement award for Englert and Higgs, who are both in their 80's.
The Higgs Boson, also known as the "God particle", was confirmed last year.
It is what gives all matter its mass and is a central part of scientific theory.
