LHC discovery

Salfronz asks: “When they talk about finding a particle like the Higgs boson, and looking in certain energy levels, does this really mean that the particle is that equivalent mass?  It seems like at the energy levels they’re looking at that these particles would be easily detectable if they actually had the mass to correlate […]
