The Higgs: boring, or the dawn of new physics? | COSMOS magazine | Discovering Higgs boson | Scoop.it

The Higgs discovery was at the very edge of what had been predicted; so it is either the last proof of the old Standard Model of physics, or the first hint that something very strange lies beyond it.... 

Likened by The Economist as important as the discovery of DNA, the Higgs find, made by teams of scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) near Geneva, had been highly anticipated.

Quantum Diaries

Quantum Diaries | Discovering Higgs boson | Scoop.it

After the spectacular results reported yesterday at CERN on the discovery of a new boson, the largest particle physics conference of the year started today in Melbourne. Such announcement put the bar high for all the speakers.

As many people have pointed out already, it is still early to call the new boson a “Higgs boson” although the odds are really high. First we must check that it behaves exactly like the Higgs boson. Is it produced as often as the Standard Model predicts, and does it decay in the same proportions as expected? Verifying these properties with the highest accuracy will be the main task in the coming months and years. It’s not that physicists are compulsive about precision, but this is exactly where we might find the opening to the “secret passage”.
