A little on leptons

Quarks may steal the show, but leptons are just as important as basic building blocks of matter! Did you know the humble electron is a lepton? Other leptons known to exist are the muon and the tau!

Thanks to the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Georgia State University, this handy resource tells us a thing or two about leptons, the other most important fundamental subatomic particles!
