Higgs Boson confirmed
Yes that is right we (the scientists at CERN) found the 'God particle' or at least have a small margin of the error.
Quote:Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider say the particle outlined in July 2012 looks increasingly to be a Higgs boson.

The Higgs, long theorised as the means by which particles get their mass, had been the subject of a decades-long hunt at the world's particle accelerators.

Yet there is still some uncertainty as to whether the particle is indeed a Higgs, and if so, what type it is.

Results at the Moriond meeting in Italy suggest strongly that the particle's "spin" is consistent with a Higgs.

RE: Higgs Boson confirmed
So... "we're" 100% sure we've probably found what we think is what we were looking for because what we found acts a lot like what we're pretty sure it is supposed to be.

Got it. Thumbsup

Didn't this already happen or did I time travel? And if I did why didn't I jot down winning lottery numbers?

Hey, Mom.

They found it a while back. They just confirmed it though. Pesky scientists, with your pouring over the data to ensure that you haven't made a mistake Cool

Confirming the confirmation of the confirmation.

Peace and Love and Empathy,

Matt

I don't think you do. Experimental result matches theoretical prediction. It's called science.

I was joking. It's called humor.
