LHC prepares for data pile-up

It has not discovered the Higgs Boson -- not yet, anyway -- but the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) particle accelerator has revealed a never-before-discovered particle comprised of three quarks. The discovery, which was announced Friday by Symmetry Magazine, was made by University of Zurich physicists and was based on data gathered in the CMS detector at the Geneva, Switzerland-based facility, which is overseen by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). According to Symmetry reporter Kathryn Grim, the particle was made up of three quarks, one of which was a bottom/beauty quark (a third-generation quark with a charge of -1/3e), and according to a statement released by the university, the baryon, which has been dubbed Xi_b^* or neutral Xi_b^star baryon, "confirms fundamental assumptions of physics regarding the binding of quarks." "In the course of proton collisions in the LHC at CERN, physicists Claude Amsler, Vincenzo Chiochia and Ernest Aguil?om the University of Zurich's Physics Institute manage
