God Particle Confirmed
On July 4th the world was told that CERN had found a Higgs Boson-like particle, now the top CERN official has indicated that the Higgs Boson-like particle is indeed, the Higgs Boson.
Rolf Heuer, the director general of Cern, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, said that he would "stick his neck out" and say it had been found by scientists.
Mr. Heuer made this statement while visiting Edinburgh where he met with Professor Peter Higgs, the man who lent his name to the Higgs Boson Paricle or the so called god particle.
While delivering a lecture to students, academics and members of the public at Heriot-Watt University he discussed the announcement made in July that the Large Hadron Collider had produced data indicating a new particle "consistent" with the Higgs Boson.
The results were preliminary and more work is being done before scientists can be sure about what they have captured.
"When they finalized the data, the significance has even increased, so this is why I stick my neck out and say I think it is beyond any doubt because it looks very, very clear and very well in hand, so I think we have found this new particle," he added.
