In 1964 quarks were proposed as the basic blocks of construction of matter. After numerous unsuccessful search quarks free of nature, the vast majority of physicists rejected this model. The quarks were finally discovered in a series of high energy electron scattering experiments. In these experiments, the electron beam and the detection equipment were the equivalent of a very powerful electron microscope that sounded the interiors of the proton and the neutron. The punctual constituents were observed in the interior, which were later identified as quarks. The discovery of the quarks changed the vision we had of the basic structure of the matter and altered the future development of particle physics. Ticket: € 4
