Evidence of New Physics from the Large Hardon Collider could violate the Standard Model of Particle Physics
Evidence has been found from a recent experiment at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland that – if true – could challenge the Standard Model of Particle Physics – a long standing theory explaining the behaviour of particles and the forces that act on them at a subatomic level. But despite the gravity of this discovery, scientists are tentative to claim it as a new discovery.
Philosopher at the Australian Catholic University Associate Professor Samuel Baron, is an expert on mathematical ontology and metaphysics. He joined us to discuss this discovery, and why scientists are so cautious in how they announce this development.
