If the entire Tevatron Run II program was repeated a hundred times and the Higgs boson did not exist, then the observed limit at each mass point would fall within the green band 68 times and within the yellow band 95 times. The decades long hunt for the Higgs boson might be soon over. The first results using the Tevatron’s full data set show tantalizing hints of what the future might bring. The Higgs boson is the only fundamental particle…
