5 New Particles Discovered in CERN

 

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) located in CERN recently detected five new subatomic particles. The particles are all different versions of the Omega-c baryon, detected in 1994. This means they are also heavier cousins to the well-known neutron and proton – the particles that make up atoms. This discovery is important as it sheds light on the inner workings of atomic nuclei, and will help physicists improve their understanding of the ‘strong force’ that holds those particles together.
