Evidence of Higgs Boson Confirmed by Fermilab

The search for the Higgs Boson could be coming to a close. Physicists at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois, presented evidence of the God particle today that backs up research from the Large Hadron Collider.

The discovery gives researchers another clue about the existence of the Higgs Boson but is not a conclusive finding.

CNET reports that the data was presented at a physics conference in Italy. The researchers from Fermi Lab said that the Higgs Boson could exist at a mass of between 115 gigaelectronvolts and 135 gigaelectronvolts. Researchers at CERN's Large Hadron Collider have found similar evidence, saying that the God Particle has a mass of about 125 gigaelectronvolts.

The find at Fermi lab confirms that researchers are closing in on the Higgs Boson but it is not enough to determine that the God Particle exists.

Rob Roser, a physicist at Fermilab, said:

"Unfortunately, this hint is not significant enough to conclude that the Higgs boson exists."
"One picture may show a child that is blocked from the other's view by a tree. Both pictures may show the child but only one can resolve the child's features. You need to combine both viewpoints to get a true picture of who is in the park."
