A quark is the subcomponent of a Subatomic particle and is comprised of preons. Quarks combine to form larger particles called hadrons, the most stable of which are the subatomic particles. They are the only Tier 2 particles to experience all 4 forces creatable in our Universe (magnetism, gravity, weak nuclear, and strong nuclear force).
There are 6 types of quark: up, down, charm, bottom, top, and strange. The heaviest quarks are the smalleest, making quarks very dense. The strange quarks may create strange matter which can infest baryonic matter.

Quarks may create dense quark stars after the death of regular stars, but this is hypothetical and the only time we spotted a Tier-2-based star is neutron stars.
Quark is part of a series on verses.
