    I like how they simultaneously announce this and piss in the eye of snooty hipster designers everywhere: http://twitpic.com/a3pl0s

    This isn't Higgs, is it? It's a new boson, but not confirmed as Higgs.

    @Dirtbox looks like Higgs, smells like Higgs, has the same energy of Higgs, so yes. it is.

    The Official t-shirt to commemorate the finding of the Higgs boson by our very own spindizzy.

    Order now to avoid disappointment, they're selling fast.

    Shouldn't that be Spindizzy might have found a Higgs?

    Are you American? or French?
    Accept the fact that spindizzy has found the Higgs and claimed it for The Queen and Britain.

    @Dirtbox You're quite right. "Only" 99.9999% confirmed.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    No, it's 99.99999 whatever % confirmed that it's a Boson and not some technical screwup. As to what Boson it is, is not confirmed at all.

    There are any amount of subatomic particles and we don't know how many, so assuming it's the one particle they're looking for and not one of the infinite possibilities is still unknown.

    Because it's a new subatomic particle, which is big news no matter what. Maybe not to you, but physicists get hard over that shit.

    Either way it's still a big discovery that puts them one step forward.

    Spin needs to come along and explain really, I'm only going from what tiny amount of this stuff I know and what I've read. Seems a lot of places are mis-reporting this, unless I'm completely wrong.

    CERN scientists do it with a hadron.

    Nah, Sky and the BBC will provide us with amazing graphics which will explain everything. I am amused by the visual representations, those I saw this morning on the news were hilarious.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    Where's what a chap from CMS posted on another board regarding this.

    Actually, we observed a new state at 125 GeV and it seems consistent with a Standard Model Higgs boson. We have NOT discovered the SM Higgs boson because we simply haven't confirmed that this new particle is the SM Higgs because we're only looking at mass itself. It could be something else with a mass of 125 GeV. To actually claim it is the SM Higgs, we need to confirm that it has spin 0, the right coupling ratios, etc. And that's what I'm working on right now. But it is very exciting because we have discovered new physics.
    Maybe I'm not so daft after all.

    What I don't understand, if this has around 130 times the mass of a proton, how does it give a proton mass? I assumed we were looking for the subsubatomic particle which made up subatomic particles i.e. a proton's made up of two particles, one giving it mass and the other giving it charge.

    A wizard did it.

    Particle physics don't seem to adhere to same rules as everything else. It's some sort of bizarro realm in which there's human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!

    Particle physics is weird, stuff can be in the same place at the same time.

    Well done, spindizzy. Where d'ya find it? Quantum sock drawer, I reckon.

    I understood it to be *a* Higgs boson - not exactly the one they were expecting. The Americans had been predicting something in that energy range.

    I think.

    'Lets all get together and tell the world we've found somehing that nobody can see anyway. That way we get funding for this big bong thing we've told eveyone is a hadron thingy. Now where were we? So you're saying that like, one tiny atom on my fingernail is like a whole other universe?'

  • Deleted user 4 July 2012 22:23:48
    So we shouldn't bother researching anything where you can't see it with your eyes or at most, a magnifying glass?

    They don't just say they've discovered something really small and have everyone in the world agree.
