Congratulations Peter Higgs

Many, many congratulations to Professor Peter Higgs, who has received the Nobel Prize for Physics today :-)

My colleague, Donald Wilson, has a brief tribute up on his Lord Provost blog, here.

I had the great, good fortune to meet Peter Higgs briefly when he received the 2011 Edinburgh Award - blogged a bit about it at the time.

He really did seem a genuinely humble and a gracious man.
