1. (1) Mesons are not produced by radioactive decay, but appear in nature only as short-lived products of very high-energy interactions in matter, between particles made of quarks. In cosmic ray interactions, for example, such particles are ordinary protons and neutrons. Mesons are hadronic subatomic particles composed of one quark and one anti-quark bound together by the strong interaction. Because mesons are composed
