CERN to announce Higgs boson observation at LHC

RATE THIS! +0
Posted in Science on 13th Dec, 2011 03:16 AM by APM

Tomorrow, at 9am EST, scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN in Switzerland are expected to announce, with fairly strong certainty, that they have observed the Higgs boson “God” particle at a mass-energy of 125 GeV.

 

For just over a week, rumors have been rife that observations with 2.5 to 3.5 sigma certainty (96% to 99.9%) have been made. For it to be declared an actual discovery, however, a sigma level of five has to be recorded. A score on the higher end of the range, towards 3.5, would definitely have particle physicists, engineers, scientists, and philosophers jumping around excitedly, though. Perhaps more importantly, LHC has two detectors at the end of its 17-mile-long particle acceleration tunnel, and both have reportedly seen the Higgs boson: the CMS detector with sigma 2.5, and ATLAS with sigma 3.5. Thanks to the matching observations, “we’re moving very close to a conclusion in the first few months of next year,” said Oliver Buchmeuller, a senior member of the CMS detector team.

You are soooooo adbloare, Janie! Your playful nuances and mannerisms reach out through the video, so it feels like you're sitting right across from me and wow, your hair looks a bit like mine in texture and color (I colored my lighter blonde hair dark blonde recently and may even go brunette yikes, my natural hair color I last showed back in 8th grade). Well, I think your new do is much a do about nothin', and although it looks like our girl's gonna have sum splainin to do I'm sure she'll creatively manage the hairy situation with her usually smooth style. Luv ya, babes xxoo xxoo Reply
