The particle was detected both by the LHC ATLAS detector and by the Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS) detector. First, the publisher did not allow us to call it the Damned Particle, although that might be a more appropriate title, given its evil nature and the expenses it is causing. The search continued at Fermilab, in the United States, where the Tevatron, the collider that discovered the upper quark in 1995, had been updated for this purpose. And the Lord sighed and said: Go, let's go down and give them the particle of God there so that they can see how beautiful the universe I created is.
The answer to that question will allow physicists to determine if the particle they have discovered is the one that predicted the theory or something more exotic, said Tuts, from Columbia University. Their discovery strongly supports the Standard Model of particle physics, which is believed to govern the basic components of matter. Discovering how dark matter interacts with the rest of the universe could reveal properties and rules that physicists don't yet know about. Evans predicted Tuesday that the teams would announce a four-sigma result, well below the rigorous standard traditionally required for the observation of new particles to officially count as a real discovery and not as a coincidence.
If the calculation is incorrect, it must come from a fundamental part of physics that scientists have not yet discovered. While that may seem impressive, it falls short of the strict five-sigma level that high-energy physicists traditionally demand for an official discovery.
