Standard model of elementary particles, graphic by MissMJ
Standard model of elementary particles: the 12 fundamental fermions and 4 fundamental bosons. Please note that the masses of certain particles are subject to periodic reevaluation by the scientific community. The values currently reflected in this graphic are as of 2008 and may have been adjusted since. Graphic and caption by MissMJ, Creative Commons Attribution, Wikipedia. The validity of the standard model has recently been confirmed with teh discovery of the HIggs boson. MAK120706

At some point something will hopefully be written here....

Particle Links and references

The Particle Adventure - A Tour of the Inner Workings of the Atom and the Tools for Discovery - a supurb site!  Highly recommended.
"The Particle Adventure is an award-winning site that introduces the theory of fundamental particles and forces, called the Standard Model. It also explores the experimental evidence and the reasons physicists want to go beyond this theory"

Elementary Particle Physics Today - an introductory on-line text document. Clear and well-written.
