Submission + - CERN discovers new particle (

An anonymous reader writes: CERN has announced the discovery of a new particle. The particle seems to have properties similar to the Higgs Boson, which is a particle predicted over 50 years ago by Peter Higgs and 5 others. The new particle was discovered with a sigma value of 5. Scientifically, this qualifies as a discovery. More experiments are needed to further explore the nature of the new particle.
