Ok, this stuff is waaaay over my head but it has popped up on BBC news that the boffins at the 666 LHC units inbred twin in the USA believe that the
illusive God particle that they have been searching for may actualy consist of a total of 5 part.
Im no egghead so i thought i would post it up here on ATS for the nerds to decipher and maybe can lay it out for the more flouridated robosapiens

US experiment hints at 'multiple God particles'
By Paul Rincon
Science reporter, BBC News DZero (Fermilab) The idea comes from results gathered by the DZero experiment
There may be multiple versions of the elusive "God particle" - or Higgs boson - according to a new study.
Finding the Higgs is the primary aim of the £6bn ($10bn) Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiment near Geneva.
But recent results from the LHC's US rival suggest physicists could be hunting five particles, not one.
The data may point to new laws of physics beyond the current accepted theory - known as the Standard Model.
The Higgs boson's nickname comes from its importance to the Standard Model; it is the sub-atomic particle which explains why all other particles have
However, despite decades trying, no one, so far, has detected it.
The idea of multiple Higgs bosons has emerged from results gathered by the DZero experiment at the Tevatron particle accelerator, operated by Fermilab
in Illinois, US.

The Standard Model fits just about every test we've thrown at it. To fit in a new effect in one particular place is not easy

DZero is designed to shed light on why the world around us is composed of normal matter and not its shadowy opposite: anti-matter.
Researchers working on the experiment observed collisions of protons and anti-protons in the Tevatron.
The collisions produced pairs of matter particles slightly more often than they yielded anti-matter particles.
The results showed a 1% difference in the production of pairs of muon (matter) particles and pairs of anti-muons (anti-matter particles) in these
Physicists had already seen such differences - known as "CP violation", but these effects were small compared to those seen by the DZero
The DZero results showed much more significant "asymmetry" of matter and anti-matter - beyond what could be explained by the Standard Model.
What can you guys make of this? As i said this stuff is way out of my leauge.
