proposed by physicists Abdus Salam and Steven Weinberg which unifies the
electromagnetic and weak nuclear forces under conditions of extreme temperature
prevalent much earlier in the history of the universe - The symmetry
corresponding to this unification has since "broken," with the
ensuing expansion and drop in temperature of the universe yielding two of the
four fundamental forces known today.
