CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, announced today that after extensive testing it was “looking more and more” like the particle which they discovered last year was the Higgs boson.
BTW, did CERN ever follow up with their claim that a certain particle (neutrinos?) traveled faster than light through solid rock?

But aren't other scientists saying there could actually be 5 Higgs boson particles?

And that maybe there is more to the Higgs field than meets the eye?

Yes. It was faulty wiring.

They did, but they looked at more data and that data helped them to nail it (sigma 5).
