CERN to announce glimpse of the Higgs.

Today at CERN scientists will present reports on the progress of the hunt for the Higgs boson.

I await the news…

For now read the BBC report here.

CERN’s public website can be found here.



Both the Atlas and CMS experiments at CERN independently suggest that the Higgs has been observed and has a mass of about 125 GeV.  However, the statistical uncertainly in the data means that the Higgs has not truly been discovered.

There will be further experiments and lots of data analysis before the claim of discovery will be made.

Optimistically,  some time next year we may have confirmation of the Higgs.

Now we await news of supersymmetry.
