Did the LHC Just Break the Standard Model of Particle Physics?

The Standard Model has dictated how we view matter and particles for decades. However, a recently-published paper from Polish physicists at CERN presents potential evidence against it.

[DIGEST: ScienceAlert, IFJ PAN]

Until recently, all particle physics measurements fit the predictions of the Standard Model, a widely-accepted framework describing subatomic particles and how they interact. Scientists at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the world’s largest and strongest particle collider, study subatomic particles by smashing them together at speeds close to the speed of light and observing the results.
