Higgs boson found

As anticipated, in a July 4th seminar at CERN in Geneva, particle physicists confirmed the discovery of the Higgs boson. Highly anticipated, the result is of great theoretical significance, as the Higgs particle completes our current model of physics at a most fundamental level. Still, like most answers, the discovery is likely to beg more questions. "The observation of this new particle indicates the path for the future towards a more detailed understanding of what we’re seeing in the data,” said CERN Research Director Sergio Bertolucci.
