Nobel Prize winner Peter Higgs plans to retire next year after he turns 85. The physicist isn't comfortable with all the attention after jointly winning the prize for predicting the existence of the Higgs boson. "I'm getting the prize for something which took me two or three weeks in 1964. It's a very small amount of my life. If you take Einstein, for the example, his achievements were several orders of magnitude greater," he said.
