Scientists trash reports of god particle discovery

The Tevatron is a circular particle accelerator at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory or Fermilab, Illinois, US and is the second highest energy particle collider in the world after the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

The Higgs boson has appeared in several works of fiction in popular culture, whose suspected existence is being determined by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Geneva.
A spokesman for the Fermilab told the “Telegraph”: “The rumour of evidence for the Higgs boson is just that: a rumour, with no factual basis. Beyond that, we don’t comment on rumours.”

Earlier, the lab’s Twitter feed said: “Let’s settle this: the rumours spread by one fame-seeking blogger are just rumours. That’s it.”

The rumours had been flying around the internet since a physicist and blogger, Tommaso Dorigo of the University of Padua, said in a blog post that he had heard “two different, possibly independent sources” claiming that an experiment at the Tevatron had found convincing evidence for the existence of the Higgs boson.

However, Stefan Söldner-Rembold, a spokesman for the Dzero experiment at Tevatron and a professor of physics at Manchester University, said: “Tommaso Dorigo’s blog is not a reliable source and is in no way supported by us.”
