In complete disagreement with my last post, it turns out that scientists at CERN might have actually found the Higgs boson. Separate experiments have independently confirmed the existence of something 'Higgs-like' at about 124-126 GeV:
Gianotti and Tonelli led two separate teams – one using Cern's Atlas detector, the other using the laboratory's Compact Muon Solenoid. At their seminar yesterday one team reported a 2.3 sigma bump in their data that could be a Higgs boson weighing 126GeV, while the other reported a 1.9 sigma Higgs signal at a mass of around 124GeV. There is a 1% chance that the Atlas result could be due to a random fluctuation in the data.
