The controversial rumor is apparently based on a leaked internal note from physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 17-mile-long particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, reports Live Science.
The leaked note suggests that the LHC's ATLAS particle-detection experiment may have picked up a signature of the elusive Higgs.
The signal is consistent, in mass and other characteristics , with what the Higgs is expected to produce, according to the note.
"It is actually quite illegitimate and unscientific to talk publicly about internal collaboration material before it is approved. So this 'result' is not a result until the collaboration officially releases it," he said.
"So the signal may be evidence of some other particle , which in some sense would be even more interesting , or it could be the result of new physics beyond the Standard Model," he said.
