No less than Fox News reports that Fermilab has found a new particle! And it’s true, but this is one of those places where the word “particle” is not descriptive. This is a new [but totally expected!] HADRON, a particle made from other known particles — quarks, antiquarks and gluons.
I’ve tried to write a brief commentary on the news from Grenoble about the search for the Higgs particle, and what happens next.
