Tests refute 'God particle' discovery claims

Tests refute 'God particle' discovery claims

Earlier, the researchers working on the CDF experiment at the United States’ Tevatron ‘atom smasher’ had announced that they had detected signs of an unanticipated particle.  

Scientists believe that a confirmation of the earlier findings would have heralded one of the most radical changes to physics in years.

“We looked at the data-set that CDF originally published. We inject a signal in our
simulation, which looks like what we would have observed if CDF had seen the real thing,” BBC News quoted Prof Stefan Soldner-Rembold, spokesperson for the DZero collaborationas saying.
