Il bosone di Higgs 04.07.12

Il CERN, come annunciato, ha presentato oggi i dati degli esperimenti CMS e ATLAS al Large Hadron Collider che confermerebbero l'esistenza dello sfuggevole bosone di Higgs, la particella mancante per comprendere come la materia dell'universo abbia una massa.

Scientists at CERN say they've found the Higgs boson with 5-sigma certainty, or a false positive probability of about 1 in 9 trillion. Evidence of the particle's existence in the 126GeV mass range was gleaned from the CMS (video below) and ATLAS experiments at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva. CMS spokesperson Joe Incandela explains, "this is indeed a new particle. We know it must be a boson and it’s the heaviest boson ever found."
