This Missing Force Field Could Lead to a Dark Matter Breakthrough

While you’re probably pretty familiar with the standard model—a theory of fundamental particles and how they interact—you might be less familiar with what’s known as the “strong CP problem.” The strong CP problem is a glaring flaw in the standard model that we are still trying to understand and solve.

The strong CP problem is such a mathematical improbability, physicists think there must be something else at play. In the 1970s, scientists Roberto Peccei and Helen Quinn proposed that maybe there’s some undiscovered parameter, like a field that inhibits strong CP violation.

If this field does exist, then there must be a particle to go with it.
