THE PARTICLE ADVENTURE
An Interactive Tour of
the Inner Workings of the Atom and the Tools for Discovery.
The Particle Adventure introduces the theory of
fundamental particles and forces, called the Standard
Model. It explores the
experimental evidence and the reasons physicists
want to go beyond this theory.
In addition, it provides information on particle decay and a
brief history section.
