In a paper (link is external) published today in the European Physical Journal C, the ATLAS Collaboration reports the first high-precision measurement at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) of the mass of the W boson.

This is one of two elementary particles that mediate the weak interaction – one of the forces that govern the behaviour of matter in our universe.

The reported result gives a value of 80370±19 MeV for the W mass, which is consistent with the expectation from the Standard Model of Particle Physics, the theory that describes known particles and their interactions.

Science joke.

A physicist sees a man standing on a ledge ready to jump. He shouts out "Stop!!!!! You have so much potential!!!!"
