Just recently, the folks at the LHC ATLAS lab narrowed down the energy window for isolating the Higgs Boson at around 115 – 130 GeV. A lot of activity occurs near the mass range of 125 GeV mark, marking it as a point of interest for discovery. However, it could be an anomaly – a fluctuation, but that remains to be seen most likely in 2012.  Despite it’s ubiquitous task of giving mass to particles, it is a short lived particle quickly decaying into several possible combinations of particles. It is in one of these decay modes that a small excess of particles is seen.

The Higgs remains the last event of interest in physics or the holy grail. This is because it’s discovery will validate the Standard Model.
