The Smallest Thing There Is

The science of quantum physics, or the world of the very small.
By Douglas Duncan

Did you ever ask as a child, “What is the very smallest thing that there is?”, or “How small can something be before it becomes nothing?” Asking those two questions usually give rise to the grander third one, “What is the opposite of the universe?” Well, it is just a theory at this point, as there is currently no technological way of observing; but quantum physicists now theorize that the at the very bottom of the ladder, is nothing more than vibrating bits of oscillating waves, that for now, can only be described as ‘strings’. 644 more words


Particle Physicist Interview

Please tell us about your work

On Friday, January 3 at about 5 a.m. Central Standard Time, Onne Peters was on a control room shift for Fermilab’s DZero detector when he saw something that wasn’t right: hot cells, or excess jets, appearing in the detector’s calorimeter. 855 more words
