The field of theoretical physics provides a fascinating ‘playground’ for scientists seeking to prove new fundamental theories, as most ideas appear on the paper, and then, if the conditions are right and the scientific assumptions match the reality well, those theories may be proven experimentally. This is the case for the modern particle physics: the existence of most of ‘yet-to-be-found’ particles has to be defined using mathematical models. Not all these models prove to be right, although many of them could provide basis for new science fiction movies. For example, does the title ‘black hole atom dark matter particle’ draws your attention?
