New data analysis indicates particle is Higgs Boson: CERN
The long-theorised subatomic particle could help scientists explain why matter has mass.
Geneva: Physicists say they are now confident they have discovered a long-sought subatomic particle known as a Higgs boson. The European Organization for Nuclear Research, or CERN, says a look at all the data from 2012 shows that what they found last year was a version of what is popularly referred to as the 'God particle'.
CERN physicist Joe Incandela said in a statement on Thursday that "it is clear that we are dealing with a Higgs Boson though we still have a long way to go to know what kind of Higgs boson it is."
The long-theorised subatomic particle would explain why matter has mass. It is considered a missing cornerstone of physics. Last July scientists with the world's largest atom-smasher announced finding a particle they described as Higgs-like.
