The observation of three new "exotic particles" could provide clues about the force that binds subatomic particles jointly.

The LHC consists of a 27-kilometre ring

Scientists at CERN say they have observed a unique type of "pentaquark" 

the third time the LHC has carried out collisions since its debut in 2008.

The LHC's underground ring of superconducting magnets propel microscopic particles along a 17-mile circuit and at nearly light speed, smashing them together
