Submission + - W Boson mass found, leads way to Higgs Boson->

SchrodingerZ writes: Scientists have deduced the “world's most precise measurement of the mass of the W Boson,one of nature's elementary particles, has been achieved by scientists from the CDF and DZero collaborations at the Department of Energy's Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.” This new number (80375 +-23 MeV/c2 by the way) puts more constraint on the mass of the theorized http://www.exploratorium.edu/origins/cern/ideas/higgs.html"> Higgs Boson Particle ,which is theorized to give mass to all other things, completing the http://public.web.cern.ch/public/en/Science/StandardModel-en.html"> standard model .“Scientists employ two techniques to find the hiding place of the Higgs particle: the direct production of Higgs particles and precision measurements of other particles and forces that could be influenced by the existence of a Higgs particle.”
