Medicine & TechnologyWIth the advancements of studies in particle physics, it is just as free to celebrate several of the revolutionary particle detectors that allowed us to see the undetectable matters.
A team of physicists discovers the capability of subatomic particle charm mesons to oscillate between particle and antiparticle state. The findings could open research for other particles outside the Standard Model and may answer questions about antimatter.
If only the world were as unified as the field of particle physics, what a grand world it would be...
Over 5,000 of them have come together in what is the largest scientific collaboration on record. Their paper, which was published on May 14th in Physical Review Letters, is a joint effort between members from ATLAS and CMS, two teams that operate detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), as they attempt to unravel the mysteries of our universe.
Every science fiction fan is familiar with the notion of parallel universes with the Star Trek series being one of the first to popularize the notion. However, thanks to the Large Hadron Collider, we may soon have proof that a parallel universe does, in fact, exist.
