yesterday was a big day. physicists at the large hadron collider in geneva announced the discovery of a new, never-detected-before particle. they are 99.9999% (5 sigma) sure that this particle is what the infamous higgs boson should look like. here's the glamour graph: that little red bump, relative to the yellow, is the signal. i know it doesnt look like much and probably means very little to most, but watch this enlightening video and it will all (hopefully) make much more sense!
