HISTORY WILL be made this morning on the French/Swiss border, as most of us are munching cornflakes or struggling to work through the rush hour. Scientists at Cern, the European centre for nuclear research, are expected to announce the discovery of the Higgs boson – what people can’t resist calling the “God particle”.

And while its announcement won’t stop the cornflakes going soggy or make the traffic go faster, the final discovery of Higgs will rank as one of the greatest scientific achievements of all time.

News of the discovery was reportedly ‘leaked’ yesterday in a video from CERN, which turned out to be one of several pre-prepared announcements, depending on the official outcome.
