New particles discovered last year of the world's largest atom indeed the Higgs Boson. The scientists reported today at the annual conference Rencontres de Moriond, Italy.

Some physicists announced in July last year with 99 percent certainty that they have discovered a new elementary particle weighing about 126 times the mass of the proton. Higgs also referred to as the "god particle", even though many scientists disappointed with this designation.

However, two of the CMS and ATLAS experiments have not gathered enough data to say for sure that the Higgs boson particle. The last piece of the puzzle that has not been found to be predicted by the standard model, the theory of modern physics. And now, after collecting data two and a half times more in the LHC, physicists say that it is the Higgs particle.

"The initial results with 2012 data sets are magnificent and for me, it's definitely the Higgs boson even though we still have a long process to find the Higgs boson this kind," said CMS spokesman, Joe Incandela. Meanwhile, Dave Charlton, ATLAS spokesperson agreed that the new results point to the new particle has a spin-parity of the Higgs boson as in the standard model which refers to the quantum property of elementary particles.

To confirm the Higgs boson particle, physicists collect data that would reveal the quantum nature and how it interacts with another particle. For example, the Higgs particle should have no spin and parity. Or measure how the behavior of reflection to be positive. Both are supported by data from the ATLAS and CMS experiments.

Detecting the Higgs boson is very rare, with only watching one for every 1 trillion proton-proton collisions. For this reason, the LHC physicists need more data to understand all the ways in which the Higgs decays.

Physicists say that the Higgs boson could read the doom of the universe in a very distant future. That is because the mass of the Higgs boson is an important part of the calculations that indicate the space and time in the future.
