LHC: the 115 GeV "Higgs" evaporates after 100/pb

Jester has analyzed YouTwitFace, the new overarching social network, and concluded that ATLAS has looked for the diphoton decays in its 100/pb (one hundred inverse picobarns) of data - by now, it has recorded over 200/pb of collisions - and the 4-sigma signal of a decaying 115 GeV "Higgs" has gone away.

CMS has looked into the same channel and it sees no excess of diphoton events. So sorry, Ms Wu.
