Talk:Gluon

Question for specialist: are gluons really massless? Following http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/particles/expar, this is not true. Also, from my (poor) understanding, it is not simply that gluons "bind" the quarks together; they are themselves, sort of, composed of a quarks pair. -- looxix 10:16 Apr 14, 2003 (UTC)
