This chart shows what the universe is made of. This chart shows all the elementary particles in the standard model of particle physics, and many non-elementary particles too. It starts with the basics: an atom contains a nucleus of protons and neutrons, which are made of quarks. The chart organizes all the important particles and classes of particles: elementary fermions (quarks, leptons, electrons, neutrinos), elementary bosons (gluons, photons, W and Z bosons, higgs, gravitons), composite…

Quark:   Atoms are divided into smaller particles called electrons, protons and neutrons. Hundreds of other elementary particles form these like mesons, muons, neutrino and positrons.  These elementary particles are again made up of extremely small particles called quarks.  Quark is hypothetical particle that carries a fractional charge. There are four kinds of quarks, each having antiparticle called Antiquark:  The Up Quark (u)  The Down Quark (d)  The Strange Quark (s)  The Charm Quark (c)

Physics is the study of matter, its composition and energy. Scientists have attempted to explain how matter comes into existence and how it operates for thousands of years. It is now known that all matter is composed quarks and leptons, elementary particles that combine in different ways to create the matter we live with everyday.

So what is string theory? For that matter, what the heck are elementary particles? If this all sounds totally confusing, try this section first.
