Scientists from the LHCb (Large Hadron Collider) at CERN have announced the discovery of a new particle from the baryon family. The new particle is made up of two “charm” quarks & one “up” quark. This new particle had been theorised but this is the first time they have seen one despite searching for years.
The CERN press release reports….
Today at the EPS Conference on High Energy Physics in Venice, the LHCb experiment at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider has reported the observation of Ξcc++(Xicc++) a new particle containing two charm quarks and one up quark. The existence of this particle from the baryon family was expected by current theories, but physicists have been looking for such baryons with two heavy quarks for many years. The mass of the newly identified particle is about 3621 MeV, which is almost four times heavier than the most familiar baryon, the proton, a property that arises from its doubly charmed quark content. It is the first time that such a particle has been unambiguously detected………
……. “Finding a doubly heavy-quark baryon is of great interest as it will provide a unique tool to further probe quantum chromodynamics, the theory that describes the strong interaction, one of the four fundamental forces,” said Giovanni Passaleva, new Spokesperson of the LHCb collaboration. “Such particles will thus help us improve the predictive power of our theories.”
In the quote from CERN Spokesperson Giovanni Passaleva, it mentions how this new particle will help scientists understand the strong force in nature. Its this, strong force, the nuclear bond that holds everything together, that they seek to break to create portals, so to have a better understanding of how it works is advantageous to those seeking open the doorway to other dimensions.
The article goes on to say…..
The observation of the Ξcc++ in LHCb raises the expectations to detect other representatives of the family of doubly-heavy baryons. They will now be searched for at the LHC.
Perhaps i over think things, but anytime CERN make any kind of announcements about discoveries, part of me thinks its all to justify the heinous amounts of money that has poured into the place every year. It could well be that such announcements, that always seem to dangle the carrot of more eureka moments on the horizon, are merely marketing ploys to drum up yet more funding for the future.
