LHC to make Higgs boson announcement before Christmas?

Rumours suggest that a Higgs boson announcement could be forthcoming from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) team before Christmas. A signal has reportedly been detected that could indicate a Higgs particle with a mass of 125 GeV.

Public talks to discuss the findings seem set for December 13th, with a closed-door CERN meeting the day before. Physicist Lubos Motl warns against expecting definitive proof of the Higgs boson, suggesting that the findings might be less conclusive than some would like. Nevertheless, a step forward seems possible.

Even inconclusive data could be exciting if it demonstrates a strong chance of some kind of particle existing beyon the realm of standard Physics models. Just don’t expect someone to hold up a jar with a Higgs boson whizzing around inside.

  1. The UFOs are from the sub quantum world which the SM had been trying to write off for a century. It is the inertial locking of space which needs to be understood and STR needs to be modified before LHC folks can read what they see. I had been conducting experiments and some information could be found on my site anadish.com . You may not take me seriously for the time being; however, with ‘time’ things will change, as the need to explain the anomalies at LHC grow!
