    LHC 'has two years to find Higgs'
    28 February 2011 - Researchers working at the Large Hadron Collider have said they expect to discover the Higgs boson particle by the end of 2012. If the LHC does not turn up evidence of the Higgs during this run, physicists say they may have to significantly alter their views of physical laws.
