#38 Quarkonia

Quarkonium, in plural Quarkonia are flavorless mesons composed by a quark and its own antiquark, like charmonium and bottonium. Learn more here.
So, we were in our Nuclear Physics class when we read the term 'quarkonia' in our text book. My mate Sara suggested that it sounded like the name of some fantasy world and thats how The Chronicles of Quarkonia came up!

#37 Compliment

Bc+ particles are B mesons made of a c (charmed) quark and a b (bottom or beauty) antiquark, so it is a meson that has a quantum number for 'charm' and for 'beauty'. Aren't they appropiate? The nicest kind of particle! I'll totally date them. For more information check Wikipedia.
This one is for a very special philosopher ;)
