It seems that conflicting reports are making it difficult to determine if the Higgs-Boson has been found at last. The four experiments designed to find evidence of the existence of the Higgs boson and possibly solve the mystery of why baryonic matter has mass (an elementary and experimentally provable observation) are returning conflicting results. Two of the experiements in the United States have collected data suggesting that they may, in fact, have spotted the elusive and as-yet hypothetical particle. The other two... not so much.
