LHC Discovers New Particle

The scientific field continues to be in awe from discoveries made using CERN's Large Hadron Collider. New particle that isn't found on earth has been discovered according to the team's most recent announcement.
http://idealab.talkingpointsmemo.com/201...overed.php
Quote:An entirely new type of particle has been discovered by scientists using the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), near Geneva, Switzerland.

The discovery of the new particle, called “neutral Xi_b^star baryon,” was made by the CMS experiment, one of six separate particle physics experiments running at the LHC. It was announced Friday by Symmetry Magazine.

“Besides helping to understand how quarks bind and therefore further validate the theory of strong interactions, one of the four basic forces of physics, this measurement represents a tour-de-force that opens up good perspectives for future discoveries,” wrote Carlos Lourenco, a senior researcher with the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), the organization that oversees the experiments at the giant accelerator, in an email to TPM.

The new type of particle is so rare that it cannot occur anywhere else on Earth outside of the accelerator, and only occasionally in outer space.

“It might get produced once in a while, when a high-energy cosmic ray collides with the moon, for instance,” Lourenco told TPM.

The particle’s rarity is due in part to its composition: It is made up of three quarks which normally aren’t found locked together.

“When these three quarks get together, they immediately divorce, instantaneously,” Lourenco explained.

The new particle was actually created in 2011, when the CMS researchers collected collisions between two beams of protons going in opposite directions through the 17-mile-long underground ring that comprises the LHC accelerator.

When the two beams smash into one another, they produce countless debris, a reaction designed to simulate the conditions just after the “big bang,” the theorized event that birthed the Universe, hence the LHC’s nickname as the “big bang machine.”

But the debris, which may contain previously unknown times of particles, are incredibly small, and only last for an unfathomably short time before decaying into nothing.

In fact, in the case of the new particle, by neutral Xi_b^star baryon, the existence of the particle itself was so brief that it could not be detected directly, but rather by its decay signature.

“We managed to find it nevertheless,” Lourenco said. “It is a ‘strongly decaying resonance’. It lives for less time than you or me can imagine.”

“However, the Xi_b^star breaks up in a known cascade of decay products,” Lourenco continued. “Ernest Aguiló, a postdoc from the University of Zurich, identified traces of the respective decay products in the data and was able to reconstruct the decay cascades starting from the Xi_b^star decays.”

A diagram of the decaying process of neutral Xi_b^star baryon can be seen below. The black star indicates the initial collision, with the arrows representing the decaying quarks that make up the particle........

The diagram should be read from left to right. The big blue balls are the baryons: a fundamental rule of particle physics dictates that the number of baryons (eventually subtracted of the number of anti-baryons) remains the same in whatsoever reaction one considers. So we have a blue ball to the left, and we need to continue having a blue ball throughout as the reaction develops, until we end up with a proton, the lightest blue ball, and thus a perfectly stable baryon which cannot turn into anything else. Fortunately so, since otherwise we ourselves would also live a shorter and more radiating life than we do: we are made of protons (and neutrons, which are stable within nuclei; but that's another story).

The black lines in the diagram show the propagation of quarks. I wasn't tidy enough to label each line to show to which quark it corresponds, but if you care to know I can list them here: at the very left we start with a b, a s, and a u quark in the Ξ*_b: three lines from top to bottom. The u quark line soon diverges to become part of a positive pion (the leftmost green ball). To make a positive pion the u quark must bind with a anti-down one, which is the other line. That line is connected with the quark line which takes the place of the original up quark in the baryon: this down-antidown pair has "popped into existence" thanks to the strong interaction which de-excites the Ξ*_b into a Ξ_b^-, which is now made up of a (bsd) quark triplet.

But soon, the b quark decays by weak interaction (with the emission of a negative W boson, shown by a red dashed line). The b thus turns into a charm, which becomes part of a J/ψ meson. The J/ψ is a bound state of a charm-anticharm pair, so the anti-charm must be the result of the negative W disintegration. Together with it, a strange quark is created, so that the resulting baryon is now a Ξ^-, a particle made now by a (ssd) combination. In other words, the decay of the Ξ_b^- occurs by the conversion of a b-quark into a charm quark; but it is not the latter which takes the place of the b; rather, it is the strange quark popped into existence by the W boson.

RE: LHC Discovers New Particle
urantia book higgs-boson (God particle) speculation:

"Ultimatons are the energy particles which make up the electrons, the PRIME physical units of material existence (472:1); Ultimatons aggregate into electrons. (475:1)

Ultimatons do not whirl about in circuits within electrons, but they CLUSTER, - or spread, in accordance with their AXIAL REVOLUTIONARY VELOCITIES, which determines:

a. The differential electronic dimensions
b. The NEGATIVE or POSITIVE reactions of the several types of electronic units

The entire SEGREGATION AND GROUPING of electronic matter, RESULT from these various functions of the COMPONENT ULTIMATONIC INTERASSOCIATION."

More at source.

This is tantamount to an assumption that three cars that crash into
each other and then bounce apart exist momentarily as a single existence
unit.

And how would 'scientists' know that the particles they assume exist,
are rare in outer space?

Even a physicist can be on the wrong road and travel it to a destination
that is not only the wrong place to be, but symptomatic of severe OCD.

It is most likely that this physicsbabble was created over a table at a bar
to dazzle the polies for more money.

When law is made meaningless for some, law becomes meaningless for all.

teach RE: LHC Discovers New Particle
They're just making shit up now, to justify their existence/ funding......new particle MY ARSE, they found that when three quarks get together they 'divorce' immediately, but before they divorce.....it's a NEW PARTICLE for a split nano second....genius sir!

I don't trust that machine or that method of "scientific" discovery. Why do men always got to explode, destroy, kill, or slam something to study it?
