A conference recently held by hunters of the Higgs Boson has presented data that suggests the particle found by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) was indeed the Higgs Boson. However, those who were hoping for more unexpected data that would hint at other as-of-yet unproven theories remain disappointed .
The Higgs Boson, postulated by Peter Higgs, is thought to be the part of the standard model of particle physics that imparts mass to particles. More accurately, particles that posess mass are said to interect with a field, called the Higgs Field. This field slows particles down, giving rise to the phenomena of mass and inertia.
