"The world’s biggest particle physics lab played down yesterday claims of a major discovery, after a leaked memo hinting that the elusive Higgs boson — or 'God particle’ — may have been found circulated on science websites. A spokesman for CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, said that the memo wasn’t intended for publication and that the claims probably wouldn’t withstand closer scrutiny. If proven to exist, the Higgs particle could explain why matter has mass, an enormous breakthrough." (04/27/11)
