In July we reported that the LHC's spotted the Higgs boson decaying to bottom quarks. Now, ATLAS and have jointly announced the discovery.
Look at this Higgs-tastic amazingness! Today is a monumental day for physics. ATLAS & CMS observe the Higgs boson decaying to bottom quarks at the 5σ level. In the 90s/00s, during #LHC planning, it wasn't clear we'd ever see this b/c it's *really* hard.
Impressive results - first observation of Higgs decaying to bottom quarks: by and . This measurement was once thought impossible at the LHC! Result agrees with the Standard Model, unfortunately...
