Tevatron Experiments Report Latest Results in Search for Higgs Boson
March 7, 2012
New measurements announced today by scientists from the Collider Detector at Fermilab and DZero collaborations at the Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory indicate that the elusive Higgs boson may nearly be cornered. After analyzing the full dataset from the Tevatron accelerator, which completed its last run in September 2011, the two independent experiments see hints of a Higgs boson.
