The first reference to the search for the Higgs Bosun appeared in the UK’s daily national newspaper The Times on January 12, 2008, in an article, entitled : ’ “It” is still there – Humanity is hard-wired to explore’ which asked :
“Does the Higgs Bosun particle exist? The truth is that we have no idea.“
Just two months later another ‘Times‘ article again drew attention to the bosun : “The Compact Muon Solenoid, which aims to detect the Higgs bosun – [is a] high priority”
And in September of the same year a third ‘Times’ piece pointed out that: “Should the Higgs bosun exist, it is almost certain that the LHC will identify it.”
Since then, the story has foundered – for The Times has published no further details whatsoever on the search for the elusive Higgs Bosun. Bearing in mind the possible importance of the quest, and the eerie silence regarding progress since 2008, Improbable appeals to readers: If anyone has up-to-date information on the Higgs Bosun, please get in touch.
