Higgs Found! Universe Fully Explained! All Physicists Fired Since They're Redundant Now! Witten Wins NOBEL Prize!
A nice summary of the rumor du jour, that photon scattering has been observed by ATLAS at the LHC in Geneva at 115 GeV with 4-sigma confidence, thus implying that Higgs is discovered and interpreted by some that SUSY is real, is given by Philip Gibbs at viXra Blog, here,
Phil's a funny guy. I especially like his line: If it is real then CMS must see it too. Therefore Tomasso Dorigo must remain silent.
I'm from Missouri*, I'll believe it when the 5-Sigma results are actually published. I grow weary of rumors, and I've only been following this stuff for two years. I don't know those of you who have been following particle physics for decades can stand it.
(*- I'm really from New Jersey. We let Missouri call itself "The Show Me State" because we already had a nickname after our lovely gardens. However, we're the original Show Me State.)
UPDATE:: We asked popular singer Shakira what her response was to this (possibly) wonderful news. Here was her response:
Wow! Some people get REALLY emotionally invested!
You can't say Physics isn't exciting!
