Ok, so you found your particle. Its a nice ego stroke to know you were right and it exists.
That does what for us?
What innovations can come out of this discovery?
Will this lead to further advancement of quantum theory?

This discovery merely proves the existence of certain scientific theories, that until this discovery were basically supported by an educated guess. This isn't going to make leaps and bounds for innovations, or weaponry but rather an understanding as to why everything exists as it does.
