What is the fuzz about the “scientific” discovery of the Higgs particle?
Could there be a probability of a scientific discovery tuesday?
Scientists measure their experiments by a term called sigma.
There is no scientific discovery about a sigma 2.5 or 3.00 as probably will be the case on tuesday. Maybe even lower, maybe 3.5
If Newton were sitting under his appletree and made 100 observations, and in one instance the apple didn’t hit him in the head, it is a sigma 2.5. A sigma 5.o is EVERY time that the apple falls down, and that includes doing it a million times and more.
THAT is a scientific discovery.
At sigma 3 the apple fals wrong one out of every 370 times you do the experiment. That is not a scientific discovery either.
My prediction is that the Higgs particle never will reach close to a sigma 5.
Behind the prediction there is a theory, read it by clicking above.
