    From what I've read, it seems as though they haven't actually found it, just found some of the stuff they think it produces? And since the Boson isn't really quantifiable, but rather this intangible thing then the product of it is good enough?

    I'm still having trouble getting my head around what it actually is, though I understand that it is what gives subatomic particles their mass. One thing that is bothering me about the experiment though is that the particles are needed to produce the boson rather than the other way round as per conditions of the 'bang, I guess. Interesting none the less.
