Chinese particle accelerator BES II discovered a slew of particles that are 4-quarks. They are centered about a mass of 4 GeV, a very small fraction of GeV — up and down.

If your battery is 1 Volt then it will accelerate your electron to 1 eV, you need then 1 billion = 10 crore batteries to achieve this sort of energy, may be much more than 40 crore batteries actually.

Some of these 4-quarks are also confirmed by Belle, Tsukuba, Japan — where I worked and BaBar, California, USA.

India has planned its 1st-ever particle accelerator for a decade now which is already working its physics and design out but facilities have been stopped by environmentalists and governmental apathy — or is it purely political or even cultural apathy?

If we can go to Mars why can’t we go to the atom?

All it needs is a laboratory that has never come up and there are thousands of Indians who are working in other countries which have such facilities. Also BES is an international collaboration hence a boon for declining shine of the USA particle physics community. Indeed John Link was interested to have me taken as a postdoc into his neutrino research at BES. But me-knew-no-better. That experiment was called Daya-Bay neutrino experiment.

I did not decline, perhaps I reclined after which someone else joined the BES. Then he left physics, called me a year or so ago and said I have left and joined such and such. I did not say “ye to hona hi tha”, this had to have happened.

Realize this, irrespective of what is happening in your career, physics is something the world will always respect. Einstein has brought that privilege for us all.
