"After more than 10 years of gathering and analyzing data produced by the U.S. Department of Energy's Tevatron collider, scientists from the CDF and DZero collaborations have found their strongest indication to date for the long-sought Higgs particle."



Tevatron Scientists Announce Their Final Results On the Higgs Particle


"The Tevatron experiments accomplished the goals that we had set with this data sample," said Fermilab's Rob Roser, cospokesperson for the CDF experiment at DOE's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. "Our data strongly point toward the existence of the Higgs boson, but it will take results from the experiments at the Large Hadron Collider in Europe to establish a discovery."


Supposedly results will also be published in only two days
from the LHC (Large Hadron Collider) so keep an eye out! This is big!

In a very general understanding the Higgs Boson, also called The God Particle, is supposedly responsible for items that are physical or have mass. If we can isolate the Higgs Boson theoretically we'll be able to create objects from scratch and have a much deeper understanding of physics.

Don't get me wrong this is very exciting!
I'm just sick of hearing "We have nearly, we are almost, proof in a couple of days!"
Hopefully this time for real.
Does look promising .. this time..!

Conspiracy theorists constantly go on about how science is magically 'hidden' from view, and only the 'ptb' really friggin' know. So CERN makes a very obvious attempt at being open and transparent about their proceedings... and we get:

For goodness sake, what more do you bloody well want?

So, this particle - if it does exist in a more substantial manner than a finding presenting an indication of its existence - merely presents an indication that the Higgs Field might exist. Do I have that correct?

And the Higgs Field might be a "molasses" that is invisible, while holding everything together like glue. Is that right?

Unless every science reporter I've read is being unusually reserved in their reporting, the Higgs Boson isn't much more than a suggestion of an indication that may or may not actually be an indication of something that has existed as a theoretical possibility that may or may not explain why stuff wades through what seems like a vacuum of open space at less than the speed of light and some of it combines with some other of it to create mass.

If finding an indication of an instant when something that may or may not have indicated that the Higgs Boson particle might've existed for a split instant within a trillion collisions over a ten year period is big news, then good for them. I might hold off on the high fives, myself. Then again, I'm the cautious sort.
