After extensive peer review, the Higgs Boson has finally become actual science.

CERN has not confirmed this is the Higgs Boson, but: 

"… as the Standard Model of particle physics only has one undiscovered particle remaining, it probably is the Higgs boson.”

There is also the outside chance of it NOT being the HB, so what happens then? How does a Higgs-less universe come about? Who knows?

All that means is we would have to come up with a new method of physics to explain how particles acquire mass.

The wave/particle duality of chickens. In Minecraft.

That is an awesome sentence.

Apparently CERN have repeated the September experiment and eliminated at least one source of error.

They’re using much shorter beams of neutrinos to increase the accuracy of their findings, but is this all codswallop? I kind of hope it isn’t!

CERN churns out an awesome finding.

Turns out they were running experiments and they found a special neutrino going 60 nanoseconds faster than the speed of light, with a margin of error of 10 nanoseconds.  CERN is asking physicists everywhere to help verify what they’ve been verifying for months, and see if anyone can lend any insights into what’s going on.

Don’t worry guys, Einstein’s theories aren’t going anywhere. 

"I don’t think you’re going to ever kill Einstein’s theory. You can’t. It works," Kostelecky said. There are just times when an additional explanation is needed, he said.

So, what lies in store for us? Is this a hoax? A miscalculation? Or is the universe yet more elusive in its ways of operating?

Ooooh, if this isn’t fitting for my 600th post I don’t know what is :D

Scientists at Fermilab, the particle accelerator in Illinois, may have found the Higgs Boson. Maybe. They aren’t really confirming anything yet, it could all just be a statistical error or miscalculation.

The key phrase, everyone agrees, is “if it holds up.” The experimenters estimate that there is a less than a quarter of 1 percent chance their bump is a statistical fluctuation, making it what physicists call a three-sigma result, enough to attract attention but not enough to claim an actual discovery. Three-sigma bumps, as every physicist knows, can come and go.

So have they, or not? Only time and excruciatingly slow and thorough analysis will tell.

… Unfortunately, I have my doubts. :/
I don’t know why.
