'Vice' reports that the Large Hadron Collider
"beauty experiment" is meant to investigate
the nature of the reality we inhabit. .
The "beauty experiment," otherwise known
as LHCb, focuses on the search for
subatomic particles known as quarks.
Quarks can be divided into several varieties: up, down, charm, strange, top, bottom and antiquark.
According to an announcement by CERN,
scientists working on the project have
discovered three never-seen-before particles. .
The latest discovery includes
a new pentaquark and the
first-ever pair of tetraquarks. .
The first new particle, a pentaquark,
was discovered in the decay of a B meson.
According to 'Vice,' the second and third
particles discovered were a "doubly electrically
charged tetraquark" and its neutral pair.
We’re witnessing a period of discovery
similar to the 1950s, when a ‘particle zoo’
of hadrons started being discovered
and ultimately led to the quark model
of conventional hadrons in the 1960s.
We’re creating ‘particle zoo 2.0.’, Niels Tuning, LHCb physics coordinator, via 'Vice'.
Scientists involved with the project say
the discovery is another step toward
understanding the mysterious universe we exist within.
Finding new kinds of tetraquarks
and pentaquarks and measuring their
properties will help theorists develop
a unified model of exotic hadrons,
the exact nature of which is largely unknown, Chris Parkes, LHCb spokesperson, via 'Vice'.
