Exotic Hadron Particles Discovered

The presence of exotic hadron particles within the particle accelerator at CERN has baffled physicists. They have been discovered within the complex equipment much to the surprise of the scientists.

The fact has been affirmed without a shadow of doubt that hadron particles exist. And these strangely different forms of infinitely small matter do not conform to the standard manmade version of quantum physics. They are a breed apart. 

They are formed by the combination of quarks and antiquarks. These exotic hadron particles have been found in the context of CERN in Switzerland. This is the same facility where the Higgs boson, also known as the particle which proved the existence of God, was discovered two years back. 

The CERN specialists announced recently that the quirkily-behaving hadrons had been found in the tunnels of the particle accelerator. The possibilities opened up by this finding are innumerable. In fact, the chance occurrence has lent a new angle to strong interaction physics. 

"We've confirmed the unambiguous observation of a very exotic state — something that looks like a particle composed of two quarks and two antiquarks," study co-leader Tomasz Skwarnicki, a high-energy physicist at Syracuse University in New York said in a statement. The discovery "may give us a new way of looking at strong-[force] interaction physics," he added.

While the models followed by modern science explain baryons and mesons, they are not fully able to rationalize different variants of hadrons. The signs were there of such an exotic particle some seven years ago. 

Scientists doing experiments found an awkward resulting particle termed Z(4430). It was composed of two quarks and two antiquarks. However, the findings were spurned since there was no solid proof or conclusive evidence. 

Therefore, the experiment was repeated on a more rigorous basis and it gave the same results as before. Now finally this analytic tinkering with the basic stuff of the universe at the world’s largest particle accelerator has yielded definite criteria which define this bizarre particle. 

The fact that such a particle does actually have an existence is a source of excitement and anticipation. As Skwarnicki colleague at CERN, Sheldon Stone said, “it is great to finally prove the existence of something that we had long thought was out there.” Science has just taken one giant step towards the unknown.
