I know, we were rushing headlong into verifying our current Standard Model paradigm, when the physicists at CERN say, whoa, hold it now; lets just take a step back and look at what we’ve got.

This speaks to how good our scientists in particle physics really are. Integrity in science always requires good data often from multiple repeats of experiments, many heads pouring over the data, and finally consensus; consensus that can be verified by researchers the world over. This is especially important given our bias that the Higgs boson does exist. In a case like this one must be careful not to read into the results.

Go to Sean’s excellent summary of the results. I don’t think I could do any better explaining it and besides I’m too lazy this morning and would like to get back to my violin.
