As mentioned here, the LHC should begin "re-discovering" the W and Z bosons if all goes well in the near future. This is yet another step toward discovering the theoretical Higgs. (The W and Z masses are around 80-90 GeV and the Higgs should be somewhere between 115-150 GeV.)
Today I had a fellow grad student email me pictures of events they think may be the Z boson. If so, the machine is right on track. Pictured above are the events.
However, though things are on track, several people have told me it will still be a few years before we can definitively say the Higgs has been discovered.
