'Hold On, Not So Fast'.Apparently conclusions were jumped at a 'leetle bit' to soon. Just after one week of further study they're now saying what was 'found' did not act like the Higgs Boson was supposed to act. And the first results haven't been able to be reproduced by follow up 'atom smashing' tests since then. In short, they still have to keep looking for it. (I didn't bookmark it, sorry, was very busy)
We don't think the Higgs Boson was found after all.
That article yesterday reminded me of the 'Neutrino Test' that exceeded 'c' done by the Italians a while back. Except that as we now know it didn't. Their measuring instruments were not calibrated correctly, Oops! Ergo, 'c' is still 'the law' not just a good idea, and even a neutrino has to obey it. (and E=mc2 still rules)
So (for now) add the 'Higgs Boson Found' to the 'Neutrino oops' file.
The Higgs boson may not have been found after all, warn particle physicistsKeep on trucking guys, it ain't our tax money funding CERN :-)
But was the newly discovered particle an imposter? Some experts are warning that yes, there's a good chance that the Higgs boson has yet to be found, after all.
See, physicists at CERN weren't using microscopes or similar tools to view the Higgs boson directly, they were looking at the energy signatures of other particles created.
