Announced discovery of a particle that would be the Higgs boson
Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) presented the analysis of data from the Large Hadron Collider, claiming they are almost certain to have found the Higgs boson.
atlas and CMS Experiments that are developed at CERN in the search for the Higgs boson today presented their results: Come for the presence of a new particle, which could be the Higgs boson in the mass region around gigaelectronvoltios 126 (GeV).
Explained from the CERN ATLAS and CMS both have to find a statistical significance of 5 sigma in the scale that particle physicists use to describe the certainty of discovery: 1 sigma means that the Results could be random fluctuations in the data , 3 sigma count as an observation and 5 sigma is a discovery.
Thus, as will be discussed today in a leaked video on the Web at CERN , scientists are almost convinced to have found the “God particle”, but have been cautious to confirm it, ensuring that there are still testing to confirm that the is actually finding the Higgs boson.
And is that the results presented today are labeled “preliminary” because they are based on data collected between 2011 and 2012, but this year are still being analyzed. This discovery could provide answers to how matter reaches its mass, which would be essential to understanding the origin of the universe.atlas, CERN, CMS, Experiments, find, God particle, Higgs, Higgs boson, matter, origin, Results, Universe
