Physicists Glimpse Signs of ‘Triangle Singularity’ in Unexpected First

Physicists sifting by previous particle accelerator info have identified proof of a hugely-elusive, by no means-in advance of-noticed process: a so-termed triangle singularity. 

Initially envisioned by Russian physicist Lev Landau in the 1950s, a triangle singularity refers to a rare subatomic process wherever particles exchange identities in advance of flying absent from each other.


In this circumstance, two particles – termed kaons – type two corners of the triangle, whilst the particles they swap variety the third place on the triangle.
