When you are talking about stuffs in the universe, the first things coming to your mind may be the giant galaxy clusters or immense black holes. Or you might say something smaller in size but still big, for example, stars. However, have you thought about the other end of the spectrum? What is the tiniest object in the universe? Photons? Or maybe gluons?

In the following video of the latest Talk Nerdy to Me, Jacqueline Howard pays a visit to the Femi National Accelerator Laboratory in Illinois to figure out how scientists are investigating the smallest things in the universe. You can also learn how these particle physicists study objects like bosons which have a length of 10-17 meters.
