A seminar will be held today at CERN at which the ATLAS and CMS experiments will present the status of their searches for the Standard Model Higgs boson. These results will be based on the analysis of considerably more data than those presented at the summer conferences, sufficient to make significant progress in the search for the Higgs boson, but not enough to make any conclusive statement on the existence or non-existence of the Higgs.
The seminar begins at 14:00 CET. The auditorium in which the seminar will be held is reserved for CERN personnel and researchers from the laboratory's user community, but a video stream will be relayed to another auditorium in which scientists will be on hand to answer questions.
At 16:30 CET CERN management and representatives of the two experiments will be available to take questions from the media. Journalists wishing to attend should register with the CERN Press Office. Both the seminar and the following Q&A will be webcast. Journalists following the webcast may submit questions through Twitter using the hashtag #Higgsupdate.
A press release will be issued at 15.30 CET in which there will be links to photo and video material. It will be available here: press.web.cern.ch...
Text background on the Higgs, and a glossary of important terms in Higgs research can be found here:

I recall recently reading about an experiemnt at CERN involving subatomic particles in which they exceeded the speed of light, which if indeed true, and not an error within the testing equipment would massively open up our understanding of physics and what is actually achieveable.
The article is below:
Perhaps the annocement will relate to this.....

As for the earth, me diggs that, so perhaps it is a "Diggs Bison" particle they will reveal after all....
