Researchers could be very close to finding a FIFTH fundamental force. Results from the Large Hadron Collider hint at a particle that doesn’t fit the laws of physics. The new particle is believed to be SIX times heavier than the Higgs boson particle.
Further testing is required which is why more ‘collisions’ will commence next month in order to obtain new data. Scientists believe they will have either the ultimate confirmation or refutation of its existence by summer of 2016.
Professor John Ellis, theoretical physicist at Kings College London told the Mail Online in an interview: ‘it would be something completely beyond the Standard Model, and the tip of an iceberg of a large new set of particles if it exists.’
Two of the detectors, ATLAS and CMS, were used to look for new physics and did so by counting ‘particle decays’ that ended up in TWO photons
Researchers believe that this is a good way to push the limits of physics beyond the known because photons are easy to detect and scientists know exactly what to expect in terms of results of background events.
‘It weighs about 750 GeV, corresponding to about six times heavier than the Higgs boson, and almost 800 times heavier than the proton,’ said Professor Ellis.
The Big Bang Theory is an American sitcom created by Chuck Lorre and Bill Prady, both of whom serve as executive producers on the show, along with Steven Molaro. All three also serve as head writers. It premiered on CBS on September 24, 2007.
The show is centered on five characters: roommates Leonard Hofstadter and Sheldon Cooper, two physicists who work at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech); Penny, a blonde waitress and aspiring actress who lives across the hall; and Leonard and Sheldon’s equally geeky and socially awkward friends and co-workers aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz and astrophysicist Rajesh Koothrappali. The geekiness and intellect of the four guys is contrasted for comic effect with Penny’s social skills and common sense.
Three other supporting characters have also been promoted to starring roles: Leslie Winkle, a physicist colleague at Caltech and, at different times, a lover of both Leonard and Howard who left the show after season 3; Bernadette Rostenkowski, Howard’s fiancée, who is a microbiologist and former part-time waitress alongside Penny; and Amy Farrah Fowler, a neurobiologist who joins the group after being matched to Sheldon on a dating website.
The evaluation of AISSCE 2012 Physics started and CBSE has prepared a fool proof marking scheme which will give the students the marks they deserve.
However, those who just left the questions unanswered will be at loss; because many of the difficult questions are liberalized but only those who attempted the questions will get the benefit.
Those questions with tougher subdivisions are so evaluated that the easier portions are given more marks than the difficult portions. So, if the students attempted the easier portion and left the difficult portion, the loss is not much.
Your voices are heard, thanks to CBSE for paying heed to us – the teachers and students.
