Physicists working with the experimental results of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, reported the discovery of two previously unknown massive particles. The team of scientists analyzed the data obtained during the experiment BaBar, which was conducted in 2006 by a team of physicists at Stanford. Then the researchers noticed two energy burst, but could not find an explanation.
Now, a group led by Tim Gershon from the University of Warwick in the UK has announced that the energy bursts were caused by the presence of two massive particles, mesons. The mass of each of these particles, which so far have received the code name DS3 (2860) and DS1 (2860), nearly three times the mass of the proton and corresponds to 2.86.
