AN ITALIAN PHYSICIST has said that the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in the US has discovered the “God particle”. Prof Tommaso Dorigo from the University of Padua wrote in his blog that rumours of the discovery came to him from two different sources.

The Higgs boson is called the “God particle” because it is said to explain why other particles have mass and is the last of the particles outlined by the standard model of particle physics to be found. Fermi said last year that it expected to have enough data to prove or rule out the existence of the particle by early 2011, the Telegraph reports.

The particle accelerator at Fermi, called Tevatron, is due to be closed down when the newer CERN accelerator gets into full swing.
