Higgs Boson rumours strengthened by Tevatron dat
Hopes that Cern scientists have found the Higgs Boson were strengthened yesterday when rival American researchers announced their strongest evidence yet of its existence.
Results from the US Tevatron, a smaller cousin of Cern's Large Hadron Collider, "strongly point" towards the existence of a Higgs Boson, scientists said.
Telltale signals which could indicate the Higgs were identified within the same search region where the LHC identified promising “hints” of the particle last December.
Although the Tevatron’s results are nowhere near strong enough to qualify as a discovery, they will fuel growing speculation that LHC scientists are set to make a conclusive announcement on the particle’s existence on Wednesday.
Because the Tevatron and LHC use very different methods of searching for the Higgs Boson, the fact that their signals match up greatly reduces the chance that either could have happened by chance.
Prof Dan Tovey, Professor of Particle Physics at the University of Sheffield, said: "These intriguing hints from the Tevatron appear to support the results from the LHC shown at CERN in December.
