A particle that doesn’t fit the laws of physics – CERN

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.

GENIUS MEET 2010 -Eduworld

Thiruvananthapuram (14 August 2010)

Eduworld Foundation – A non profit organization aimed at nurturing scientific spirit in children organized Genius Meet 2010 for the students of Trivandrum schools who scored high in class 10 during the year 2010. About 150 students along with their parents participated.

Former chairman of the Indian Space Research Organisation, G. Madhavan Nair interacted with the students.

The participants also got chance to hear and interact with Sh. B.N. Suresh, Director of the Indian Institute of Space Science and Technology; Dr. E.D. Jemmis, Director of the Indian Institute of Science Education and Research; A. Sivathanu Pillai, Chief Executive Officer of BrahMos Aerospace.

Dr. Sivathanu Pillai’s address and presentation were very much appreciated by the audience. All were wonderstruck with the advancement and the high degree of precision India has achieved in the field of missile technology.

The students were taken to a visit to the Science and Technology museum and in the mean time Prof E D Jemmis interacted with the parents of the genius students and stressed on giving freedom for the students to think and choose the right career which they find themselves suitable for. He stressed on the importance of attending the exams like KVPY (Kishore Vygyanik Protsahan Yojana – A scheme introduced by the Govt of India to identify the genius and to grant them scholarship to study in Top Schools and courses like IIT, IIST,IISER etc Get the details here http://www.iisc.ernet.in/kvpy/). He stressed that there is a high need of students selecting research as a career. Pure science is also leading to great jobs with long lasting and healthy work environment than the get rich quick type jobs as in the IT field.

Dr. S.K. Satheesh of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, who won the Bhatnagar Award for 2010, was felicitated at the meet.

 

The Genius Meet 2010 ended with felicitation of the top scoring students and the National Anthem
