With scientists at the Large Hadron Collider expected to announce tomorrow that they've found the Higgs boson, the team at the US' Fermilab has made its bid for its share of the glory.
Scientists at the US' Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory say they too have spotted signs of the Higgs boson in the same mass range as has been observed at the Large Hadron Collider.
Tomorrow, the US' Tevatron particle accelerator is to give up its efforts to recreate the Big Bang and shut down after 25 years of operation.
The hunt for the elusive Higgs boson - rather misleadingly known as the God particle - may be nearing its end.
Physicists at Fermilab, which operates the Tevatron particle accelerator, say they may have found a new elementary particle - but not the so-called God particle, the elusive Higgs boson.
The first solid results are in from the Large Hadron Collider. And while the physicists say they haven't yet found the Higgs Boson - the so-called God particle - they have found strong supporting data for its existence.
Fermilab is denying reports that its Tevatron particle accelerator has detected a Higgs boson - the so-called God Particle.
