Physicists discover particles never seen before on a table

The researchers discovered a new particle that is a magnetic relative of the Higgs boson. While the discovery of the Higgs boson required the enormous accelerating power of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particles, this never-before-seen particle – dubbed the axial Higgs boson – was found using an experiment that would fit the plane of a small kitchen.

In addition to being the first in its own right, this magnetic cousin of the Higgs boson – the particle responsible for granting their mass to other particles – could be a candidate for dark matter, which represents 85% t of the total mass of the universe but is revealed only through gravity.
