A force 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.
