The Building Blocks of The Universe – Quarks & Supersymmetry Explained by Brian Greene

One of the most famous theoretical physicist, mathematician, and string theorist Brian Greene explains in great detail the building blocks of the Universe. Quarks came into existence since the very first instants of the universe – less than 1 terasecond after the big bang.

Brian Greene also explains the hard concept of Supersymmetry. Which predicts that each of the particles in the Standard Model has a partner with a spin that differs by half of a unit. So bosons are accompanied by fermions and vice versa.

Brian Greene also mentions how the strong nuclear force gets weaker when quarks are near each other while the opposite is true.
Quarks come up in six different varieties which are: Up, Down, Top, Bottom, Strange, and Charm.

All commonly observable matter in the unvierse is composed of up quarks, down quarks and electrons.
Quarks have various intrinsic properties, including electric charge, mass, color charge, and spin. They are the only elementary particles in the Standard Model of particle physics to experience all four fundamental interactions.

Since the earliest days of humanity, we have been obsessed with figuring out how things work. And we’ve come a long way and understand quite a bit of our world. But the vast majority of the inner workings of the universe…Remain unknown.
