New particle found consistent with Higgs bosonJuly 4th, 2012 - 3:38 pm ICT by IANS
Geneva, July 4 (IANS) Physicists have observed a new particle consistent with the long-sought Higgs boson, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) announced Wednesday.
According to CERN, two independent teams observed a new particle in the mass region around 125-126 GeV (gigaelectronvolts) at the level of 5 sigma, Xinhua reported.
More studies and cross-checks will be, however, needed to determine the precise nature of the particle, researchers said.
