CERN physicists discover the GOD Particle

In the field of Physics a quantum jump was made as the scientists at the Switzerland’s CERN research centre near Geneva discovered a sub-atomic particle ‘Higgs boson’, prevalently known as the “God particle”, conceived to be an essential building block that contributed to the shaping of the universe. A declaration to this effect was made ..

Neutrinos: Faster than Light? It’s proved

It has been generally assumed that neutrinos travel at the speed of light. According to the theory of relativity, if neutrinos are massless, they must travel at the speed of light. However, if they carry a mass, they cannot reach the speed of light. There have been various theories regarding the speed of Neutrinos. It ..

Thin band of Anti-protons covers Earth- Study

Recently, a study was published in the ‘Astrophysical Journal Letters’, which has confirmed the theoretical work that predicted the Earth’s magnetic field could trap antimatter. A team of researchers led by the University of Bari, for the first time spotted a thin band of anti-matter particles, called anti-protons, enveloping the Earth. This study says that ..
