Particle Physics: What's an Odderon, and Did CERN Just Reveal it Exists?
JAY GORY, MANAGING EDITOR, science
A team of more than 100 researchers working at the Large Hadron Collider in Europe may have just witnessed the first direct evidence of a theoretical particle called an odderon. An odderon—in theory—is a subatomic quasiparticle, meaning something that behaves enough like a particle to be considered one. First theorized back in 1973, it has eluded observation by scientists working with particle accelerators, the instruments that smash atoms together at the speed of light so we can study the reactions. read more
