CERN, the world's largestatomic crusher, states that it has observed three new "exotic particles" during the third collision.
After a three-year hiatus for maintenance and routine inspections, the Large Hadron Collider will operate for nearly four years, operating at an unprecedented 13.6 trillion electron volts.

CERN,is based in Genevaand has three new He said observations of "exotic particles" can provide clues about the forces that bond subatomic particles.
Observations of the first duo of new types of pentaquarks and tetraquarks provide a new angle for assessing the "strong force" that holds nuclei together.
NASA WEBB telescope "first light" images shed tears in the eyes of astronomers
with subatomic particles There are, most exotic hadrons made up of two or three elementary particles called quarks. The strong forceof is one of the four forces known in the universe, along with the "weak force" applied to the decay of particles, as well as electromagnetic and gravitational forces.
The LHC's superconducting underground ring propels microparticles at near the speed of light along a 17-mile circuit and grinds them together. The data from the collision is snapped up by the high-tech detector along a circular path.
CERN scientists welcome a smooth start to what the LHC is expected to operate for nearly four years on the "Run 3", which has run its third clash since its debut in 2008. did.
