    A group of researchers have identified two seismic events that they think provide the first evidence of a previously undetected form of matter passing through the Earth.
    Read the article to see the rest.

    Pretty strange stuff, considering we don't know all that much about quark's I guess anything is possible.

    Aren't quarks the things inside of an atom?

    They're always wrong. They discover something, and find theywere wrong about it. Happens every time.
