This discovery contradicts one of the most important and successful theories in modern physics.

Near Chicago, USA, a group of scientists discovered that the mass of a subatomic particle is not what it should be.

This measurement is the first conclusive experimental result that goes against the famous Standard Model theory, which has been used for years to determine the approximate mass of subatomic particles.

The team found that one of these particles, known as the W boson, weighs more than the theory predicts.
