SCIENTISTS AT CERN are preparing to make an announcement about the Higgs boson aka the God particle this morning… or are they?

The Higgs boson is a subatomic particle which has been predicted to exist, but has never actually been observed. One Nobel laureate in physics has said that finding the Higgs boson would tie up a loose end of the so-called standard model of physics, which requires a Higgs-like particle to exist.

Watch the announcement live: (If you can’t see the video you can watch here)
