23286326 story No Higgs Just Yet 190 Posted by timothy on Monday August 22, 2011 @03:25PM from the explain-how-finding-it-would-help-me dept. gbrumfiel writes "Last month, scientists reported a number of 'excess events' that could be caused by the appearance of the long-sought Higgs boson inside the LHC. But it looks like they'll have to put the champagne back on ice. New data presented at a conference in India shows no new signs of the Higgs. The signal was probably just a statistical fluctuation."
