A New Map of All the Particles and Forces

A New Map of All the Particles and Forces

This is an interesting new way to look at the standard model of particle physics that re-arranges things to better illustrate how different particles relate to each other.

The current diagram to present the standard model is below, this just shows the normal matter. I have one that shows anti matter too. In some ways this follows a similar layout to the periodic table

standard model

As an intermediate, diagram I actually like this diagram

standard model

Both the above diagrams are sourced from [1].

The new model called the 'double simple model' does look far more complex. However it has far more detail and better illustrates the relationship and interactions between the different forces / particles. You can view this at [1], while the paper describing how the team came up with this is at [2].

I have printed this, so it is something to discuss at the next STEM group meeting on the 12th March.

I think the paper at [2] has been around for a while, so this article is more on the Quanta Magazine article.

In a recent update it seems the mass of the W boson could throw a real spanner in the works regarding the standard model.

Effect of long term space flight on the Brain

Study explores effects of extended spaceflight on brain

Scientists from the U.S., Europe and Russia are part of a team releasing the results of a large collaborative study involving the effects of long duration spaceflight on the brain. 

Page citation : Medical University of South Carolina. “Study explores effects of extended spaceflight on brain.” ScienceDaily. ScienceDaily, 12 April 2022. www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2022/04/220412141100.htm

Positive note: Despite the current situation in Ukraine, those involved in science can still carry on working and collaborating, for the benefit of everyone.

LibreAdventure Testing 3

LibreAdventure Testing 3

Lots of work behind the scenes to iron out some bugs & problems with the software. I was involved with further testing on 15/3 and there is further testing planned for 17/3. This testing has also included load testing so we know the server will stand up to the number of users expected.

Looking good for the weekend. There will be a LibrePlanet post on Saturday with a link to this.
