Discussions Discussion Physics I: Classical Mechanics
Dan Thompson, Nov. 18, 2011

Is ‘the new physics’ here? Atom smashers get a big surprise!!! The world’s largest atom smasher, the Large Hadron Collider, the 17-mile (27 km) circular particle accelerator underground near Geneva, Switzerland, is designed as a portal to a new view of physics. And it has produced its first peek at the unexpected: bits of matter that don’t mirror the behavior of their antimatter counterparts.


The discovery, if confirmed, could rewrite the known laws of particle physics and help explain why our universe is made mostly of matter and not antimatter. Here’s a great documentary of the Large Hadron Collider
