Higgs Boson - Discovered? Maybe or Maybe not...

$10 billion to build a collidier, to send protons whizzing around a circular 27-kilometer (17-mile) underground tunnel at nearly the speed of light to create high-energy collisions seems to have finally produced some result... Those impacts can offer clues about dark matter, antimatter and the creation of the universe, which many theorize occurred in a massive explosion known as the Big Bang.
"Out of some  500 trillion collisions, just several dozen produced "events" with significant data, said Joe Incandela of the University of California at Santa Barbara, leader of the team known as CMS, with 2,100 scientists. "

even thought they say it's 99.999 percent proven... it's not absolute proof yet
