Saturday April 19, 2014

An international team of physicists working with CERN's Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland announced this week that they have confirmed the existence of a new and mysterious subatomic particle called a tetraquark hadron.   We'll talk with Syracuse University’s Dr. Tomasz Skwarnicki who is one of the lead authors of a paper that details this discovery.

And...

Astronomers have announced the discovery of a planet where it's not too hot or not too cold for liquid water on the surface, which could mean it could be a world with life-friendly conditions.

After examining a photo of a bright protrusion on the edge of one of Saturn's outer rings, scientists are now thinking that the ringed planet may be creating a new moon

These stories and more are coming up for you on VOA's science, health and technology magazine, "Science World."
