Not exactly beyond my scope ... but, yes it is pretty tough. They say they have had glimpses of Higgs Boson after two separate experiments at LHC involving 380 trillion collisions.
This assures that the Standard Model, which is the edifice of particle physics is, after all, not wrong! Till now, Higgs was the only one that was elusive, but has been found.

Its theistic nickname was coined by Nobel prizewinning physicist Leon Lederman, but Higgs himself is no fan of the label. "I find it embarrassing because, though I'm not a believer myself, I think it is the kind of misuse of terminology which I think might offend some people."

According to Higgs, it wasn't even Lederman's choice to call it the god particle: "He wanted to refer to it as that 'goddamn particle' and his editor wouldn't let him."
