Large Hadron Collider scientists have reported glimpsing the Higgs-boson particle for the first time.
The findings were revealed at a seminar in Geneva today. Two teams have been conducting experiments that have both hinted at the existence of the particle and which have generated great excitement in the scientific community. Experts have been quick to emphasise that there isn't enough evidence yet to claim a formal discovery but nonetheless things are looking very promising. "These are intriguing hints but please be cautious - we have not found it or excluded it yet," said Rolf-Dieter Heuer, director-general of Cern.
"At a specially-arranged seminar at the Cern laboratory in Geneva, researchers presented clues in their data which suggest experts may have pinned down the "God particle" at last."
