I could not sleep the other night and was watching the "All News Channel" 
(Saturday, February 10, 2001).  I caught the tail end of a report detailing 
the discovery of another subatomic particle.  It was described as "the 
smallest subatomic particle yet known."  A picture was flashed on the 
screen.  It was blue with a black center.  It resembled the pupil of the 
eye.  I searched all of the news resources on the internet (ABCNews, CNN, 
etc.) and could not find a relating story.  After reading a few more of the 
articles provided by MAD Sci, perhaps it is the zero point energy field 
theory proven true.  On the other hand, perhaps I shouldn't watch 
television through sleepy ey
