    Here is Peter Woit's account, from this week, of the search for the Higgs at Fermilab. http://www.math.columbia.edu/~woit/blog/archives/000163.htm [Broken]. It includes a link to a slide show from a talk on the subject.

    It would't mean too much to theorists the finding of the Higgs boson.Particles predicted by supersymmetric extensions of the SM would be the major breakthrough...

    Otoh the nondetection thereof would be seriously interesting.
