Higgs Boson May Not Existimage credit
The Higgs boson is a hypothetical massive elementary particle predicted to exist by the Standard Model of particle physics. Its existence is postulated to resolve inconsistencies in theoretical physics, and experiments attempting to find the particle are being performed using the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and the Tevatron at Fermilab.
Signals reported in July seemed to indicate that the Higgs boson might have been detected. But since then, those signals - hinting that the theoretical 'God' particle might have a mass between 120 and 140GeV - looked much less conclusive among new statistics received from the experiment.The Presurfer
