electroweak electroweak theory
Notes:
Although these two forces [electromagnetism and the weak interaction] appear very different at everyday low energies, the theory models them as two different aspects of the same force. Above the unification energy, on the order of 102 GeV, they would merge into a single electroweak force. Thus if the universe is hot enough (approximately 1015 K, a temperature reached shortly after the Big Bang) then the electromagnetic force and weak force will merge into a combined electroweak force.
