The standard model of particle physics excellently describes all known fundamental particles and forces (with the exception of gravity). Over the last several decades, this theory has become established through a preponderance of experimental data, culminating in the detection of the top quark at the Tevatron collider. However, while there has never been a direct observation of a particle that does not fit in the standard model, there are compelling reasons to believe that such particles exist, and so the standard model is not a complete description of Nature.
