Higgs boson found?

posted by Jason Kottke   Dec 07, 2011

Rumor has it that the LHC at CERN has found the Higgs boson. The news runs contrary to some earlier speculation.

The teams are sworn to secrecy, but various physics blogs, and the canteens at Cern, are alive with talk of a possible sighting of the Higgs, and with a mass inline with what many physicists would expect.

Since the Higgs’ nickname is the God particle, does this count as the Second Coming? (@gavinpurcell)
