Madala Boson: Physicists Predict Existence of New Heavy Particle

An general group of physicists, led by a University of a Witwatersrand (UW) in Johannesburg, South Africa, predicts a existence of a new molecule that competence assist in a bargain of dim matter.

Using information from a array of experiments that led to a find of Higgs boson during a Large Hadron Collider (LHC) during CERN in 2012, Prof. Bruce Mellado of UW’s High Energy Physics Group and co-authors determined what they call a Madala hypothesis.

“The find of a Higgs boson has non-stop a doorway into origination even some-more ground-breaking discoveries, such as a regard of new bosons that are related to army and particles different before,” a physicists said.

“These new particles can explain where a different matter in a Universe comes from.”

The team’s supposition describes a existence of a new complicated boson and field.

The suppositious particle, dubbed Madala boson, has a mass of about 272 GeV – somewhat some-more than dual times heavier than a Higgs boson.

“However, where a Higgs boson in a Standard Model usually interacts with famous matter, a Madala boson interacts with dim matter,” a scientists said.

“Physics currently is during a crossroads identical to a times of Einstein and a fathers of Quantum Mechanics,” Prof. Mellado added.

“Classical production unsuccessful to explain a series of phenomena and, as a result, it indispensable to be revolutionized with new concepts, such as relativity and quantum physics, heading to a origination of what we know now as complicated physics.”

Prof. Mellado and co-authors presented their latest formula recently during a 61st Annual Conference of a SA Institute of Physics in Johannesburg and a 38th ICHEP in Chicago.
