Has anyone found a boson for Professor Higgs yet?

To add to what people are saying about the LHC in CERN, the great thing about it that even not discovering the Higgs will tell us something. Right now, current theories put limits on the Higgs mass squarely in the energy range of the LHC. So, not finding one will lead to what most call “Higgsless Standard Models” of particle physics. It doesn’t discount it, but it certainly makes it unlikely. It is also estimated that Higgs will be found (if it exists) within the first year of data taking, so you’ve got two years for the real answer to this question.
