At present scientists think that at the highest energies and earliest moments in time, all the fundamental forces may have existed as a single unified force. As the universe cooled just one microsecond after the Big Bang, it underwent a “phase transition” that transformed or “broke” the unified electromagnetic and weak forces into the distinct forces observed today.

I wanted to be sure this excellent, iconic image of the Fermilab Tevatron, which accompanies the next FTROTW article, gets into my blog stream. The other image is a good one, too. Look for that tomorrow.
