I figured they had to or it wouldn't be considered reputable. Did you catch who, Bucky?

Oh shit... I forgot, I have two sets of five digits.... I'll get on my google machine. Blink
Kimmy,
I actually misstated it. The CERN evidence actually was the confirmation of the other two. It's discussed in Girly's post link : http://press.web.cern.ch/press/PressRele...7.12E.html
and hoc's original post. ATLAS and CMS
And BTW, what is your problem girl ? You should have 4 sets of five digits. Tongue

RE: The elegant nature of science
Yes I saw somewhere there were two different groups. One called Atlas and some other group. I just know that Fermi lab has been trying to find the Higgs boson for years now and the LHC has basically put them out of business. Here's a little more clarification on the matter.

RE: The elegant nature of science
Ok. I'm seeing Fermi did confirm the initial data at the Tevatron in march... the results which indicated that if the particle exists, has a mass between 115 and 135 //bout 130 times the mass of the proton. The Tevatron data focuses on a different decay mode than the LHC.
The observed pair of bottom quarks decay mode, had a statistical significance of 2.9 sigma. Hmm. Close but... not really quite 3.

I'm happy to wait for another round of experiments to duplicate this a few more times at the LHC. If it's repeated, I'm good with it. I wonder if they will continue to use the Tevatron for the duplicate preliminaries or use the same data?

I know the LHC was built for this, so maybe they could build another elsewhere for confirmation purposes. Smile

Wow Bucky - Thanks for my breakfast reading material - the cosmic ray thing is cool! Thumbsup
