University of California claim to have found particle to prove 5th force of nature

Daily Mail - Science & tech

Researchers analysing a nuclear experiment believe they may have spotted a previously unknown subatomic particle that is evidence of a fifth fundamental force of nature. Theoretical physicists at the University of California say their find, dubbed the'X Boson' could'completely change our understanding of the universe' if confirmed. It comes just weeks after researchers at the Large Hadron Collider admitted readings they had thought could have been an intriguing new particle has turned out just to be a'statistical burp'. The new research, published in the journal Physical Review Letters, analysed a mid-2015 study by experimental physicists in Hungary searching for'dark photons.' It comes just weeks after researchers at the Large Hadron Collider admitted readings they had thought could have been an intriguing new particle has turned out just to be a'statistical burp'.


LHC search for particle that would rewrite laws of physics comes up empty

Unexplained by current models, its existence might lead to the discovery of a whole new set of particles and possibly even a fifth fundamental force. But the first results were not enough to confirm the particle exists, and now a second run of tests have failed to find this mysterious particle, MailOnline has learned. Two of the detectors, ATLAS and CMS, were counting particle decays that ended up in two photons, and found a potential new particle. If it turns out to be real, and not a blip, this would be a huge discovery. Two of the detectors at the Large Hadron Collider - ATLAS and CMS - were searching for new kinds of physics by counting particle decays that ended up in two photons.


Large Hadron Collider results hint at particle that doesn't fit the laws of physics

The first signs of a particle heavier than the Higgs boson has been seen at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Unexplained by current models, its existence might lead to the discovery of a whole new set of particles and possibly even a fifth fundamental force. But the first results are not enough to confirm the particle exists, and more measurements still need to be taken when the LHC begins to fire up again next month. Two of the detectors, ATLAS and CMS, were searching for new physics by counting particle decays that ended up in two photons, and found a potential new particle. If it turns out to be real, and not a blip, this would be a huge discovery.


LHC physicists say particle they thought would rewrite laws of physics was a 'burp'

Disappointed physicists from the Large Hadron Collider report that what initially could have been an intriguing new particle has turned out just to a statistical burp. Last December, researchers at the European Center for Nuclear Research saw two readings of what could have been a new particle that might have upended the existing main physics theory. The same centre in 2012 discovered the Higgs boson or "God particle." Two of the detectors, ATLAS and CMS, were counting particle decays that ended up in two photons, and found a potential new particle. If it turns out to be real, and not a blip, this would be a huge discovery.


Is there a FIFTH fundamental force?

The first signs of a particle heavier than the Higgs boson was seen at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) back in December. Unexplained by current models, its existence might lead to the discovery of a whole new set of particles and possibly even a fifth fundamental force. The first results were not enough to confirm the particle exists, but now the new particle could be confirmed within the next few days. Two of the detectors, ATLAS and CMS, were searching for new physics by counting particle decays that ended up in two photons, and found a potential new particle. If it turns out to be real, and not a blip, this would be a huge discovery.
