Scientists at Press Conference in Geneva earlier today
"Higgs boson hunt over:
CERN scientists at Large Hadron Collider find ‘God particle’"
says the headline (see story here and here).
The woman who found the Higgs Boson is Dr. Fabilola Gianotti (shown below). She could barely get through her remarks at the press conference announcing the discovery. “Why are you applauding? I’m not done yet. This is just beginning. There is more to come.” she said.
The man who predicted its existence nearly 50 years ago, is Dr, Peter Higgs (shown below). "I never expected this to happen in my lifetime and shall be asking my family to put some champagne in the fridge," he was is quoted as saying.
Rousing cheers and a standing ovation erupted at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) after scientists presented astonishing new data in their search for the mysterious particle.
Many hailed it as a moment in history, and white-haired veterans of the quest shed tears of joy.
Proof Positive (or so they tell us) of the Higgs Boson.
