Researchers were looking to see if part of the Standard Model of physics would hold up under extreme conditions.
If this particle really exists, then it is not just outside the standard model but outside it in a way that nobody anticipated.
The findings have significant implications for the field of physics.
The search is on for an elusive particle that could shine a light on the "dark sector"—the vast majority of the universe that we cannot see.
Scientists at CERN observed Higgs boson decaying into subatomic particles called bottom quarks.
Weak nuclear force is stronger than gravity, but weaker than, you know, strong nuclear force.
Newly discovered particle was predicted to exist by the Standard Model of particle physics.
Evidence consistent with the Standard Model is "a great triumph" but also disappointing.
