So it's not surprising, given the odds we already had, that this has been announced. But it's still amazing! Although there's another slight caveat: this boson could be a particle described by the Standard Model, or another brand of Higgs boson described by other theories, although it's apparently leaning toward the SM variety. To find out, scientists will be monitoring how it decays, which means more tests. Because you can never test something like this enough.
