Submission + - Has LHC seen a hint of the Higgs? (

gbrumfiel writes: "Researchers at two detectors at the Large Hadron Collider are seeing something unusual. The signal is faint, but it could be from the long-sought Higgs particle. The Higgs is part of the mechanism that gives other particles mass, and it also unifies the electromagnetic and electroweak forces. No one is willing to declare it found just yet, but the new data from the CMS and ATLAS detectors are an independent, "tantalizing" hint of what's to come. The results were presented today at HEP-2011 in Grenoble, France."
