Physicists discover never-before seen particle sitting on a tabletop

Researchers have discovered a new particle that is a magnetic cousin of Higgs boson. While the discovery of the Higgs boson required the enormous particle acceleration power of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), this never-before-seen particle – dubbed the axial Higgs boson – was found using an experiment that would fit on a small kitchen countertop.

This magnetic cousin of the Higgs boson – the particle that gives other particles their mass – is not only a first in its own right, but could also be a candidate Dark matter, which makes up 85% of the total mass of the universe, but is only revealed by gravity.
