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.
