Higgs found

Last particle in physics's standard model falls into place

HIGGS IN ACTION  CERN’s ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider captured this image depicting debris from a proton-proton collision. It shows the paths of two pairs of leptons, tracked by green lines (electron and positron) and red lines (muons), consistent with the expected decay products of a Higgs boson. The event was recorded on June 18.
