This summer, Virginia Tech physicists, in collaboration with others on the Belle Experiment at the Japanese National Laboratory for High Energy Physics (KEK), have obtained a measurement that shows that, to a very high degree, there is an asymmetry in the behavior of matter and anti-matter and that the difference is consistent with the prediction of the Standard Model Theory of Particle Physics first formulated in the 1970s.
BLACKSBURG, Va. —- As sometimes happens in the world of scientific research, two groups working independently come up with the same findings at the same time, such as last June when a National Institutes of Health-funded group and a private firm called Celera both announced their completion of the genome sequence.
The above story is based on materials provided by Virginia Tech. Note: Materials may be edited for content and length.
