U of R Prof. misses out on Nobel Prize

Stockholm -- The Nobel Prize for Physics has been awarded. Francois Englert of Belgium and Peter Higgs of England were cited for the "theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles."

The University of Rochester was closely watching the news from Stockholm this morning. One of the finalists was Carl Hagen, a faculty member at the university. He was a 27-year-old research associate at the U of R when he and four other physicists came up with theories about how fundamental particles acquired mass at the time of the Big Bang billions of years ago.

Hagen told 13WHAM News he thought his chances of winning were slim.
