Maybe this is a historic date and you should remeber it! On July the 4th of 2012 CERN announced recently that a new boson (it could be the long expected Higgs Boson) has been observed with a standard deviation of 5 (confidence of 99.9%). The observation is of a boson particle with a mass of 125.3 ± 0.6 GeV, at a significance of 4.9 sigma. Joe Incandela — giving the presentation — said that this is “In agreement with the standard model at 95% confidence range.” The boson is the heaviest ever found, and although this is still a preliminary result, it’s by far the strongest case yet for the existence of the elusive Higgs. This discovery is one of the latest results of running experiences with the LHC (Large Hadron Collider).
