Exotic Hadron Particle Confirmed by LHC

Quarks, or subatomic, elementary particles of other subatomic particles, have only been known to exist since the 1960′s. Since that time, though, scientists have made great progress with identifying key characteristics of quarks and their utility. Quarks come in six …

CERN is Already Planning For the LHC’s Replacement CERN is Already Planning For the LHC’s Replacement

Nearly one year ago CERN announced that the Higgs boson had been experimentally observed. The discovery was one of biggest scientific confirmations seen in decades and was one of the major goals in mind when the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) …
