Did they find the Higgs Boson Particle?

Speculation is building in the international physics community about the contents of a press conference that has been called by scientists at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), to be held on July 4, 2012.

Physicists expect that the announcement will be positive proof of the Higgs boson particle (AKA “the God Particle”) and a successful mission for the team. The anticipation reached a frenzied state yesterday when scientists from the Tevatron at Fermilab in Illinois announced that they had found significant supporting evidence for the existence of the Higgs boson.

So, you might be asking what’s so important about finding the Higgs boson?

The short answer is that the Higgs boson can account for all of the unexplained mass in the universe.
