From the Innovation News Network, May 31, 2023: Editor Georgie Purcell interviews Sean Foster, Research Scientist at Boston University, and Elia Bottalico, Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Liverpool, who are both heavily involved on the Muon g-2 experiment. The g-2 collaboration scientists are in the final stages of data analysis for Runs 2 and 3 and are preparing to announce the results later this year.

From Big Think – Don Lincoln, May 26, 2023: The search for the smallest particles remains one of science’s greatest pursuits. By today’s measurements, quarks and leptons are the smallest known building blocks in nature, yet researchers wonder if perhaps quarks and leptons are built of even smaller things. Scientists and researchers continue to to look for smaller objects inside quarks and leptons using accelerators like CERN’s Large Hadron Collider.
