    The boffins haven't found that darn boson but they say that it can have a cousine!

    Hmm will have to wait and see if it all comes true or not ...

    It's all not as easy as it seemed before. All that undiscovered bosons and stuff ...

    I thought the universe wasn't flat. XD

    I wish I knew half of the concepts talked about here...interesting stuff nonetheless

    They didn't find Higgs but they managed to narrow down the possible range and got some hints!

    So here's what they found:

    I take a wild guess and think it's gotta be 125 or 126 Gev :p

    Higgs boson "dies" pretty fast so it's just another hide n seek game

    In this case it's better to take a blackbox approach, if you can't directly observe it then try to analyze the output results

    It's far too early to say whether ATLAS and CMS have discovered the Higgs boson, but these updated results are generating a lot of interest. We'll have to wait until 2013-2014 to get more news, maybe by that time LHC will work with much higher energies.

    Yes, that's it: whatever they'll find will lead us to new physics. How knows maybe we'll even have a reason to believe in extra dimensions :) Keep on searching!

    The mass of neutrinos and existence of Higgs boson (and Higgs field) will shed some light on everything: creation of universe and all other important questions. Why do we exist, is our universe actually 10D and so on. Here's my other post about Higgs boson from other thread :

    Get to String theory already....

    I am tired of studying so much. Gets worse cause I'm an Asian
