Quarks are the unseen backbone of matter in our world and understanding them remains elusive. The CLAS Collaboration at Jefferson Lab is part of a world-wide effort to investigate this backbone to uncover why we are what we are! There is more here, here, and here including links to articles about some of the exciting physics being done at Jefferson Lab. The picture to the left is taken from a popular book Hidden Worlds about the latest research into quarks and gluons at Jefferson Lab and other places by Tim Smith.
