Traces of two high-energy photons measured in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experience

This document provided by European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) on December 13, 2011 in Geneva shows a graphic showing traces of two high-energy photons measured in the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) experience. US-based physicists reported on July 3, 2012 finding strong hints of the Higgs boson, the elusive “God particle” believed to give objects mass, but said European data is needed to confirm any potential discovery.If physicists can confirm the existence of the Higgs boson, the last missing piece in the standard model of physics, the announcement would rank among the most important scientific breakthroughs of the last century. The final findings from Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory (Fermilab) in the midwestern US state of Illinois will be followed by the announcement of more definitive results from a potent European atom-smasher on July 4.
