Subatomic particle seen changing to antiparticle and back

Posted by in category: particle physics

Physicists have proved that a subatomic particle can switch into its antiparticle alter-ego and back again, in a new discovery revealed today.

The extraordinarily precise measurement was made by UK researchers using the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) experiment at CERN.

It has provided the first evidence that mesons can change into their antiparticle and back again.
