I don't think it's quite that simple.

How much longer before confirmation hack ? You said two and a half hours but that was over five hours ago now ha ha. Why do monumanrtal decisions take
so long to announce ? These ones only come about once in a lifetime so I hope to God it is true because by the
time of the next one I shall probably be ash [ I am going to be cremated ]


The announcement's been made. They have a sigma 5 result, but that result has to be confirmed by others before they can call it a confirmed discovery. The Planck satellite results should sort it out.
