Breaking Scientific Breakthrough! Higgs Boson Particle Discovery Said to Have Leaked at the LHC - ATLAS!!!

"The controversial rumor is apparently based on a leaked internal note from physicists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 17-mile-long particle accelerator near Geneva, Switzerland, reports Live Science."

"The leaked note suggests that the LHC's ATLAS particle-detection experiment may have picked up a signature of the elusive Higgs.

The signal is consistent, in mass and other characteristics , with what the Higgs is expected to produce, according to the note."

"A commenter on the previous posting has helpfully given us the abstract of an internal ATLAS note claiming observation of a resonance at 115 GeV. It’s the sort of thing you would expect to see if there were a Higgs at that mass, but the number of events seen is about 30 times more than the standard model would predict. Best guess seems to be that this is either a hoax, or something that will disappear on further analysis. But, since spreading well-sourced rumors is more or less in the mission statement of this blog, I think I’ll promote this to its own posting. Here it is:"

On pins & needles waiting for some valid confirmation!

Certainly will have the scientific heads in a whirlwind... - SS
