The idea that all things are made up of tiny atoms dates back to the 5th century, and the development of this idea has led us to some of the most incredible scientific breakthroughs.
But what if some of these fundamental particles didn't quite fit into our understanding of quantum mechanics? What if some of these particles weren’t that small at all?
And if so, just how big can a particle get?
Dr Dorota M. Grabowska, Post-Doc in the Theory Division at CERN joins Jonathan to discuss.
