New Results Confirm: The Particle Believed To Be The Higgs Boson Really Is The Higgs Boson
The Higgs Boson really, really is the Higgs Boson.
At first, testing at the Large Hadron Collider revealed a particle that was likely the Higgs Boson, the theorized particle that gives the universe its mass. Then, more tests confirmed we were even more sure about it–there was a one-in-550 million chance it wasn’t the Higgs. Now, after even more tests, it’s been confirmed: beyond a shadow of a doubt, the particle uncovered is the Higgs.
