Physicists Just Caught Particles Spinning Wildly in The ‘Wrong’ Direction
Physicists have observed some weird atomic collision problems as particles failed to bounce off each other in the way science predicts they should.
But with some new work that helps to explain what’s going on, they may just have found the key to understand some very complex particle physics.
A new study explains how the neutrons produced when a spinning proton hits another particle can spin off in opposite directions, depending on the mass of the proton or nucleus it’s colliding with.
And according to the international team of researchers, it could help us learn more about other high energy particle collisions, such as the ones that occur when cosmic rays from outer space collide with the particles of Earth’s atmosphere.
