The Higgs is sometimes referred to as the “God particle,” to the chagrin of many scientists, who prefer its official name.

But the two experiments, CMS and ATLAS, hadn’t collected enough data to say the particle was, for sure, the Higgs boson, the last undiscovered piece of the puzzle predicted by the Standard Model, the reigning theory of particle physics.
