Slut.

Mesons are half matter and half antimatter so this is not exactly an unexpected result:

To be more precise, Mesons are hadrons made up of an quark and an anti-quark bound together via the strong force (i.e. exchange of gluons).

It sure would be nice if we could turn matter into antimatter cheaply and on demand.  That would be an even better power source than fusion.

That's the bi-curious particle.

Yeah, you say that now, but when we are sitting on a planet shrunk to the size of new Zealand and we are living shoulder to shoulder you'll be whistling a different tune.

Some Hadrons will just stick their quarks anywhere.

Will that tune be Dixie?

FTFH: Some particles like matter...

And other particles, like, totally don't.

Does this help us get closer to understanding the matter/antimatter asymmetry problem? (That is: Why the FARK is the universe mostly matter, if they should have been created and anihilated in equal proportions?). I recall vaguely they'd found *some* assymetries, but that it wasn't quite enough to account for everything.

A little misleading... the mixing parameters (x' and y') have been measured separately before, from different decay modes. This is just the first analysis in which they've been simultaneously determined from single measurement.

Sounds like we need a Giggity tag.

Pre-op or post-op?
