Researchers spot particle's change into anti-muon, muon in LHC

11/13/2012 | Reuters

CERN researchers observed a rare phenomenon in the Large Hadron Collider in which a Bs meson particle transformed into an anti-muon and a muon after collision through a process known as decay. The decay, which experts predict occurs to one Bs meson in every 300 million, was spotted using the so-called Standard Model of physics that depicts how the universe works at the most basic level. Experts expect the finding to boost efforts to find evidence of the super symmetry, or SUSY, theory, which attempts to explain strange cosmic events such as galaxies' odd speed of rotation.
