    Higgs-like Particle Discovered at CERN

    Physicists working at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) have announced the discovery of what they called a “Higgs-like boson” — a particle that resembles the long sought-after Higgs. “We have reached a milestone in our understanding of nature,” CERN director general Rolf Heuer told scientists and media at a conference near Geneva on July 4, [...]

    Fraser. One of the initial surprises in the branching ratios of the massive Higgs' decays, is it's propensity for double gammas...two photons. If that carries over to less massive/energetic versions of the same, they will have found former Brandeis physics professor,Larry Abbott's "missing piece of gravitational theory" from his talk, post Sne1987a..."The Cosmological Constant" @ MIT's Physics Colloquiem @ around 0.003-0.0003 ev. That'd mean the ubiquitous neutrino sea could interact with the electromagnetic field photons, chipping off small quanta from the energy of the neutrinos via the neutral current, and immersing us in a diffuse microwave bath @ a few degrees above 0 Kelvins. In the vicinity of a local magnetic field, the Sun', a subtle parity effect would show, superimposing a distinct dipole on the measured microwaves. Should look like this: SEE:http://www.google.com/imgres?q=evil+...6iPXzBg&zoom=1
