Physicists sifting through old particle accelerator data have found evidence of a highly-elusive, never-before-seen process: a so-called triangle singularity.
Studying the particle could provide physicists with vital insight into the rules that govern how all matter is formed.
The thinner size allows electrons to move across the device much faster, which could lead to the development of much quicker computers.
Find out how the U.K.'s largest laboratory can accelerate electrons to nearly the speed of light.
The charm meson could answer why there's more matter than antimatter in the universe.
Scientists found definitive proof that Alfven waves are accelerating electrons in solar wind across space, powering the northern lights.
A never-before-seen particle known as the odderon has revealed itself in the hot guts of two particle colliders, confirming a 48-year-old theory.
The most remote particle detector on Earth has detected the most energetic antimatter neutrino ever, confirming a 51-year-old prediction.
