Computer simulation predicts new exotic particle composed of two baryons

This would make it only the second such particle besides heavy hydrogen.

New Particles Found at Large Hadron Collider

It’s really awesome when the practice confirms the theory! Experiments at the Large Hadrdon Collider have revealed two never before seen particles – exotic types of baryons which were previously predicted by theoretical research. The new measurements serve to confirm and refine the existing theory of subatomic particles and help pave the way for the discovery of more particles predicted by

Two new subatomic particles discovered at CERN, as predicted by Standard Model

While the LHC at CERN is gearing up for its long awaited restarted, following an overhaul, scientists aren’t standing idle. After analyzing collision data made during 2011-2012, physicists have identified two new baryons, known as  known as the Xi_b‘- and Xi_b*- . The new subatomic particles’ properties match predictions based on the theory of Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD), a subset of the

Superhot filaments of gas connect galaxy clusters

Astronomers have for the  first time confirmed a bridge of hot gas with a temperature of about 80 million degrees Kelvin connecting a pair of galaxy clusters 10 million light-years apart. The discovery is of particular importance since it might help shed light on the missing baryonic matter that has been puzzling scientists for decades. The two galaxy clusters, Abell 399 and

The Milky Way is surrounded by a huge, hot halo of gas

Recent measurements conducted by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, and observed by other X-ray instruments from around world and in space, suggest that our galaxy is surrounded by hot spherical gas formation that stretches across 300,000 light years and has an equivalent mass of some 60 billion suns or roughly all the stars in the Milky Way. If these findings are indeed confirmed
