Physicists working at CERN's Large Hadron Collider say it's possible they've discovered the long-sought 'God particle'. The Higgs boson could lead to 'new physics', they add.
"We're reaching into the fabric of the universe at a level we've never [reached] before," says Joe Icandela, a physicist at the University of California in Santa Barbara and the spokesman for one of the two major experiments hunting for the Higgs boson at CERN. "This is not like other ordinary particles. It's a key to the structure of the universe."
