Standard Model
in physics, a theory that summarizes scientists' current understanding of elementary particles-(the 12 fundamental particles) and the fundamental forces of nature. The standard model is consistent with all experiments performed so far, but has many shortcomings. It does not incorporate gravity, the weakest force; it does not explain the spectrum of particle masses; it has many arbitrary parameters; and it does not completely unify the strong and electroweak interaction.
    The Standard Model doesn't allow for those things so numerous they outweigh all the stars & galaxies in the Universe.   ...comprised with information from Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
