Hi, I am new to the area of particle physics and I am still in highschool and I was wondering if somebody could answer a few questions that I have. 1) Where is a good school in Canada to go to for particle physics 2) Can for example 8 up quarks be combined together using strong nuclear force so that they begin exchanging gluons and stay together even thoug they all have +2/3 charge or would there be some sort of radioactive problem with a massive amount of + charge. 3) if there is a complete surrounding of an up quark by a bunch of other up quarks that are linked together with gluons in every direction would the up quark just sit in the middle because it is receiving equal repulsion from all sides or does it not work like that. 4) is there any good books that anyone recommends getting and reading on particle physics at a more introductory level. Thanks in advance. All help is appreciated.
