Solving Five Problems of Particle Physics and Cosomolgy in One Stroke
Posted by Guy Pirro on 12/9/2016 9:32 AM
In the search for the mysterious dark matter, physicists have used elaborate computer calculations to come up with an outline of the particles of this unknown form of matter. To do this, the scientists extended the successful Standard Model of particle physics, which allowed them, among other things, to predict the mass of so-called axions, promising candidates for dark matter that could be up to ten billion times lighter than electrons. Through a simple extension to the Standard Model (by adding just three neutrinos, a fermion, and a field that includes two new particles), physicists have come up with a new twist that they say solves five of the biggest unanswered questions in modern physics all at once: explaining the weirdness of dark matter, neutrino oscillations, baryogenesis, cosmic inflation, and the strong CP (Charge Parity) problem.
