It’s been a big few weeks for physics. First, in what is probably the announcement of the year, we managed to see the birth of a black hole in real time. And now, on the completely other end of the scale, we’re starting to get to grips with how the tiniest possible bits of matter interact.
Granted, it might not mean much to you, but a group of physicists has announced a groundbreaking discovery about subatomic particles, something the LHC has been searching for, and they’re pretty excited.
The team behind a new paper has announced the first unambiguous evidence for a special theory of how matter interacts, and it means a theory that’s been around since the 1950s makes a bit more sense.
