The Large Hadron Collider at CERN
was built to discover new l
ife forms and new civilizations
particles to complete the Standard Model of physics, of which the Higgs-Boson
is only a part. The $5 billion project has finally found something previously unseen, according to the BBC
. ATLAS has picked up Chi-b 3P: a
Boson (building block of nature)
Meson comprised of a "beauty quark" and a "beauty anti-quark," bound together with a strong nuclear force -- believed to exist in nature, but never seen until now. Yesterday's discovery is so
new, it hasn't even had a sigma rating yet, but we don't expect CERN to confirm the find until its next two hour keynote.
The initial report described the particle as a Boson (elemental force carriers), it is in fact a Meson (which comprise of a quark and an anti-quark).
