As scientists at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) continue to uncover the mysteries of the universe's formation, they have discovered three never-before-seen subatomic particles. The new "exotic particles" include a new kind of 'pentaquark' and the first-ever pair of 'tetraquarks.' The new discovery is by physicists who are part of the Large Hadron Collider beauty (LHCb) collaboration.
