American Scientist: Artist Xavier Cortada represented each possible combination of decay products of the Higgs boson in these banners. They show Higgs decay into (from left to right) two W bosons, two photons, two bottom quarks, two tau leptons, and two Z bosons. The discovery of the Higgs boson was indeed a banner moment for particle physics, but since then, experiments have been less decisive.
