Is Meson f0(1710) The “Glueball” Particle, Made Purely Of Nuclear Force?

Scientists at TU Wien (Vienna) have calculated that the meson f0(1710) could be a very special particle – the long-sought-after glueball, a particle composed of pure force. For decades, scientists have been looking for so-called “glueballs”. Now it seems they have been found at last. A glueball is an exotic particle, made up entirely of […]

Stealth Dark Matter May Explain Universe’s Missing Mass

Particle physicists have combined theoretical and computational physics techniques and used Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory’s massively parallel 2-petaflop Vulcan supercomputer to devise a new model of dark matter. It identifies it as naturally “stealthy” (i.e. like its namesake aircraft, difficult to detect) today, but would have been easy to see via interactions with ordinary matter […]

To Test Effects Of Gravity On Quantum Entanglement, We Need To Go To Space

There is an up-and-coming set of technologies that uses the strange properties of atomic particles predicted by the theory of quantum mechanics, which is the physics of the very small stuff. This technology promises to bring us computers that are faster than all the machines we have ever produced before put together, as well as […]
