Particle physics is the branch of physics that studies the nature of the particles that includes matter and radiation. Although the word particle may often refer to various types of very small objects  particle physics often times deals with investigating the irreducibly smallest detectable particles and the fundamental interactions necessary to explain their behavior.

Still a bit confused? Never fear, Dr. Marvin Druger will fill in all the gaps this week on Science on the Radio.
