Scientists have discovered a new kind of particle that could open a ‘new frontier’ in physics.
The particle, which the scientists have named Xi-cc++, was discovered using the Large Hadron Collider.
While the particles were predicted to exist, this is the first time that scientists have been able to confirm their existence.
The discovery could shed new light on the ‘strong force’ which holds the centres of atoms together.
