We just can’t seem to determine exactly how tiny they are.
The Large Hadron Collider at CERN has started doing some serious business. This time, an extremely rare particle containing equal parts of matter and antimatter popped up during experiments at the world’s largest and hottest particle accelerator. The particle, named a B meson is made out of one quark (the building blocks of protons and neutrons) and one antiquark
I gotta say, this is one of the most beautiful pictures I’ve seen all year !
