According to early reports, “one of CERN’s most senior physicists this afternoon announced firm evidence for the existence of the elusive Higgs Boson, or God particle; although the signal doesn’t meet strict scientific standards for a ‘full scientific discovery’, it’s still enough for researchers at CERN’S Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to predict a discovery next year.” Continue reading for the news report.

CERN was cautious: ‘The main conclusion is that the Standard Model Higgs boson, if it exists, is most likely to have a mass constrained to the range 116-130 GeV [a unit of energy equal to billion electron volts] by the ATLAS experiment, and 115-127 GeV by CMS.
