Tomorrow is Independence Day in the U.S. but it's Higgs Day in the physics world. At 9 a.m. Geneva time (3 a.m. EDT), CERN will unveil its latest results; AP reports CERN will say the Higgs "almost certainly does exist," but hasn't yet been "discovered." For background, watch this BBC program. Also see these posts on Quantum Diaries. Plus, Adam Mann on why a Higgs confirmation could ruin physics.
