Why the Muon g-2 Results Are So Exciting!

When a hypothesis makes a divination that disagrees with an empirical test, every so often it means we should throw the hypothesis away. But what if that hypothesis has in any other case produced the most effective divinations in all of physics? Then, that little glitch may well be pointing the way to layers of physics deeper than we have yet imagined. Well, FermiLabs Muon G-2 research project has been pursuing the most promising glitch of all, and they have just declared their outcomes.

  1. Can’t stand this guy, it’s like he’s reading someone else’s notes.

  2. John Rey Jimenez

    Blue is sus.

  3. Anomalous Materials Research Lab

  4. HilariousCartoonz

    U look like a gay irish skinny grandpa 😂

  5. Way too dank

  6. I’ve read half a dozen announcements and videos about the muon g-2 experiment, and this is the first that explains why g-2 is evidence for new particles, not just a suggestive glitch in QED’s predicted value. Well done!

    A suggestion for the graphics department: I find the 3-D angled text boxes distracting, and you surely know that mixed case text is easier to read on low-res phone connection than ALL CAPS.

  7. Marcel Humelnicu

    Given that most of our Standard Model is built around symmetries, might this perhaps allude to a potential new symmetry and therefore a new family of particles, rather than just one or more discrete particles that we don’t know of yet?

  8. Αιθηρ or aether just like ainstain and plato said,or like marvel movies show to us but it’s under a fantasy cloud.

  9. What if it’s a theory that literally adds anything that’s found?
