A preprint uploaded to the arXiv today reports on an unexplained peak in data collected from accelerators at Fermi-Lab possibly indicates the existence of a previously unknown particle. It's mass is likely in the 100-200GeV range--within the range of Higgs Boson energies predicted by the Standard Model. Is this the discovery of the century?"
