Submission + - Fermi Lab discovers new bump (nytimes.com)

schleprock63 writes: "Physicists at Fermi Lab have found a "suspicious bump" in there data that could indicate they've found a new elementary particle or even a new force of nature. The discovery could "be the most significant discovery in physics in half a century". Physicists have ruled out that the particle could be the standard model Higgs boson, but theorize that it could be some new and unexpected version of the Higgs. This discovery comes as the Tevatron is slated to go offline sometime in September."
