Rumours in science circles suggest that a Higgs-Boson announcement may come very soon indeed.
Physicists have been using the Large Hadron Collider to locate the elusive particle for years and now it seems that the search might have finally paid off. An increasing number of rumours are circulating suggesting that the Higgs-Boson has been found and that an announcement could be made at the International Conference on High Energy Physics in Australia between July 4th and July 11th.
"The bottom line though is now clear: There’s something there which looks like a Higgs is supposed to look," mathematician Peter Woit wrote on his blog.
"Ever since tantalizing hints of the Higgs turned up in December at the Large Hadron Collider, scientists there have been busily analyzing the results of their energetic particle collisions to further refine their search."
