A collision event recorded by CMS at the start of the data-taking run of 2018. CMS sifts through such collisions up to 40 million times per second looking for signs of hypothetical particles like leptoquarks (Image: Thomas McCauley/Tai Sakuma/CMS/CERN)

Mysterious Leptoquarks could bind both types of matter

The matter is made of rudimentary particles, and the Standard Model of particle physics expresses that these particles happen in two families: leptons, (for...
