Could This Elusive Particle Reshape the Standard Model?

Physicists are on the hunt for a mysterious particle that could totally change our understanding of the universe. Some scientists think this elusive particle is hiding in plain sight.


The standard model of particle physics, with its quarks, leptons, and bosons, has served scientists incredibly well since it was first put forward in 1967.


For the most part, it has correctly predicted the existence of particles with such precision that it’s often hailed as the most successful scientific theory of all time. And yet scientists are not done with it, and they’re constantly probing around its edges hunting for new particles.


In fact several teams of scientists are racing to discover what’s known as a Majorana fermion, which could be a major key to settling some of the universe’s biggest mysteries.
