Quantum "Graviton" Particles May Resemble Ordinary Particles of Force | Graviton Particls | Scoop.it

Maybe unifying the forces of nature isn't quite as hard as physicists thought it would be. Recently a silent revolution has swept through physicists’ understanding of particle collisions. The concepts introduced by the iconic physicist Richard Feynman have reached the limit of their usefulness for many applications, and the authors and their colleagues have developed a fresh approach.Using it, physicists can describe more reliably how ordinary particles behave under the extreme conditions at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, aiding experimentalists in their search for exotic particles and forces.More profoundly, the novel methods breathe new life into a unified theory that physicists left for dead in the 1980s. The force of gravity looks like two copies of the strong subnuclear interactions working in unison.
