The Higgs boson decays into matter-carrying particles known as tau leptons, yet another confirmation of the standard model of physics.
Physicists at the BaBar experiment have seen evidence pointing to a hole in the Standard Model of physics.
There's something out there that physicists have never seen before, and it's coming up from the bottom of the Earth. Scientists think it's a brand-new particle.
An ultraprecise measurement of the mass of the W boson may diverge from the Standard Model, a long-reigning framework that governs the strange world of quantum physics.
The Standard Model is the modern physical understanding of three of the four forces of nature: electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force.
