Editorial science illustrations for Symmetry Magazine via Sandbox Studio: "What’s up with the W boson mass?": https://tinyurl.com/SM-Wboson-0522. “The CDF experiment at Fermilab measured the mass of the W boson and came up with an answer that no one expected.”
I reimagined the Standard Model in the form of an antique curiosity cabinet (or “ wunderkammer “) with particles neatly arranged, held in place by cloches. The W boson — too massive and fast — has just broken out of its bell jar.
Particle physics is one of my favorite topics to learn & create visuals about. Big thanks to Michael at Sandbox Studio!
