"The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) on the Franco-Swiss border has made its first clear observation of a new particle since opening in 2009. It is called Chi_b (3P) and will help scientists understand better the forces that hold matter together. The as-yet unpublished discovery is reported on the Arxiv pre-print server." (12/22/11)
