CERN 'Higgs Boson' Announcement: We Have Observed A New Particle

In the video dated July 4 2012, Joe Incandela, a spokesman for Cern, announces that scientists "have observed a new particle". "We have quite strong evidence that there's something there. Its properties are still going to take us a little bit of time. "But we can see that it decays to two photons, for example, which tells us it's a boson, it's a particle with integer spin. And we know its mass is roughly 100 times the mass of the proton. And this is very significant. This is the most massive such particle that exists, if we confirm all of this, which I think we will," Mr Incandela, the CMS Spokesperson says. "And this is very, very significant. It's something that may, in the end, be one of the biggest observations of any new new phenomena in our field in the last 30 or 40 years, going way back to the discovery of quarks, for example," he adds. The origin of mass has been fiercely debated for decades **Credit to the UK Telegraph for the amazing video

Has the Higgs Boson Finally Been Found? The World Waits for News from CERN

This could be a huge week for the scientific world. Physicists at a U.S. laboratory claim to have come extremely close to proving the existence of the elusive subatomic Higgs boson, better known as the 'God particle,' finally bringing order and mass to the universe. The announcement from Fermilab comes before what is expected to be a huge reveal from CERN confirming the particle's existence. Now, remember, CERN houses the world's most powerful particle accelerator, the 10 billion dollar Large Hadron Collider. Fermilab scientists found hints of the Higgs, based on data gathered over the course of a decade, but the evidence fell short of scientific proof. The Higgs field is thought to impart mass to some particles and not to others, and proving its existence would validate the Standard Model, and bring us one step closer to understanding the origins of our universe. Some physicists remain cautious about the supposed findings, but I know I'm not alone when I say, I hope they found it.
