Welcome to the family! Scientists using CERN’s Large Hadron Collider in Europe have discovered two new subatomic particles. The discovery of the two related particles, submitted to the journal Physical Review Letters, fills in missing slots in the subatomic roster that had been predicted but never seen. “It’s reassuring,” said study coauthor Matthew Charles, a particle physicist at the French National Center for Scientific Research’s LPNHE laboratory at the University of Paris VI. “Not only did we find them but we got to make very precise measurements of their properties, in particular their masses.” The two new members of the subatomic family,...
