    'Angel particle' which is both matter and anti-matter is discovered after
    an 80-year quest in a 'landmark' breakthrough for quantum physics

    An 'angel particle' which is both matter and anti-matter has been discovered 80 years after its existence was first proposed by physicists. Researchers revealed that they have found the first evidence of the elusive particles in what is being described as a 'landmark' moment in quantum physics.

    The discovery could help scientists to bring a quantum computing revolution, which would allow us to make machines many times more powerful than those made using existing technology.

    'This discovery concludes one of the most intensive searches in fundamental physics, which spanned exactly 80 years.'
    To find proof that fermions exist, the scientists first needed to find 'quasi-particles'.

    Quasi-particles are particle-like excitations that arise out of the behaviour of superconducting materials. While quasiparticles are not like particles found in nature, they fit the mathematical requirements to be considered real Majorana fermions.
