Tommaso Dorigo, a physicist at the University of Padua, has said in his blog that there has been talk coming out of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois, that the Higgs has been discovered.
While media attention has been focusing on the LHC, the Tevatron has been quietly plugging away in the search for Higgs. In the 27 years since it was first completed (it has been regularly upgraded since then) it has discovered a quark and observed four different baryons. While it has not been able to pinpoint the elusive Higgs, it has narrowed the search, reducing the window of possible masses where it might be found.
But though Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory -- home to Tevatron -- hasn't said anything about the findings or the rumors, there is some reason to believe that perhaps the elusive Higgs has indeed shown itself. Fermi has said it is making progress toward the Higgs, giving itself a 50-50 chance of finding it this year and claiming it should have enough data to make a definitive statement on the Higgs' existence by early 2011 regardless.
