‘For thousands of years, humans have attempted to explain the fundamental particles from which all matter is made up of. Today, we call this particle physics. It’s the examination of matter and how it interacts at a subatomic level to create all things that make up our physical reality.
It attempts to identify what all matter is made out of and the forces that determine the way particles behave. Looking at things on a small scale like this may help us understand reality on a large scale level.
This is because on a physical level, everything is made up of matter which are tiny particles that are influenced by a force that physics is constantly trying to discover.’
