All forces except Gravity has a particle that is the carrier of that force. Why? Because gravity is explained solely as a problem in geometry and not in terms of particles.

Missed a bit :(

Gravity though should have a particle associated with it as all fields have gauge bosons associated with them. This would be the Graviton but the Standard Model of particle physics does not make predictions about a Graviton.

I believe the more advanced super-symmetrical theories and gauge theories do make predictions on what the Graviton looks like.
