With the Higgs Boson discovery this week, there were a lot of winners in the physics community, and only one loser — Stephen Hawking’s bank account. It’s a loss the physicist (and author of bestselling books) can presumably afford to take. A good week, all in all.

I can’t even pretend to be anything but elated. And I am happy to see I am not alone.
I always love to see over-blown, over-hyped & overly self-important gasbags get taken down a notch.
Yes, the money is a very small matter for Dr. Hawking, but the blow to his gigantic ego is priceless.
Why are people do elated abt this disvoery.. the wars r still on, people still dying of poverty, env is being destroyed at ever faster pace!!
Solve the real probelms n i will only then worship so called geniuses.
Yash Sharma: the problems you pose cannot be the workframe of phisycs, one cannot expect a doctor to fix a car or a mechanic to fix a patient. No one asks you to worship anybody, content is available, if you are not interested in physics you can choose to focus on other subjects.
