Rumors suggest a positive result that Higgs boson may finally, really have been discovered and one of the biggest debuts in the science world could be resolved. Results for experiments on the Higgs boson expected on July 4.

According to Physics World CERN will hold a press conference at the first day of the International Conference on High Energy Physics in Melbourne, Australia, on Wednesday July 4 to present an “Update on the search for the Higgs Boson”.

“The bottom line though is now clear: There’s something there which looks like a Higgs is supposed to look,” said mathematician Peter Woit on his blog, Not Even Wrong.
