Supersymmetry, or SUSY in short, is an exciting and beautiful theory that answers some of the open questions in particle physics, predicting that all known particles have a partner (a superpartner!) with somewhat different properties. For example,…

The discovery of the Higgs boson represents a significant breakthrough in understanding the universe’s fundamental structure and dynamics. Despite this achievement, numerous profound mysteries persist, namely what is the nature of dark matter, why…

  New in! CMS physicists search for heavy cousins of the neutrino in beauty meson decays Back in 2018, the physicists of the CMS experiment designed and recorded a B-meson-enriched data sample, the “B-Parking” data set. The B mesons (short for…

When we look at ourselves in a mirror, we see a virtual twin, identical but with left and right inverted. Charge-parity (CP) is the equivalent of a mirror for fundamental particles. If the symmetry was respected in nature, each particle would see a…
