 IMAGE: MASHABLE VIA MAXIMILIEN BRICE, CERN MAXIMILIEN BRICE, CERN VIA NASA Geneva (AP) Scientists at the world’s largest atom smasher on the outskirts of Geneva say they have discovered two new subatomic particles that could widen our understanding of the universe.  An experiment using the Large Hadron Collider (see cover photo) at CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) found the new particles, which were predicted to exist, and are both baryons made from three quarks (elementary particles) bound together by a strong force. In a statement on Wednesday, CERNRead More
