From U Chicago News, April 13, 2021: Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and the University of Chicago have demonstrated a new technique based on quantum technology that will advance the search for dark matter, which accounts for 85% of all matter in the universe.
From Reccom Magazine, April 13, 2021: After decades of speculation, a Fermilab experiment showing an unexplained discrepancy from the Standard Model was raised to a confidence level of 4.2 sigma.
From Smithsonian Magazine, April 9, 2021: Results from two particle physics experiments have come tantalizingly close to discovering a gap in the Standard Model.
From Forbes, April 7, 2021: Don Lincoln, senior scientist at Fermilab, explains that a new measurement announced by Fermilab last week goes a long way towards telling us if the venerable theory will need revising.
From New Scientist, April 7, 2021: The strange behavior of a fundamental particle called a muon may hint at the existence of exotic particles and forces beyond the standard model of physics.
From CNN, April 7, 2021: Fermilab’s senior scientist Don Lincoln explains the Muon g-2 experiment’s single measurement tells scientists the standard model of particle physics is incomplete — and has to be rethought.
From National Geographic, April 8, 2021: In a landmark experiment, a collaboration of scientists led by Fermilab has found fresh evidence that a subatomic particle is disobeying one of science’s most watertight theories, the Standard Model of particle physics.
From the Associated Press, April 7, 2021: Fermilab announced results Wednesday of 8.2 billion races along a track that have physicists astir: The muons’ magnetic fields don’t seem to be what the Standard Model says they should be.
From The New York Times, April 7, 2021: A collaboration of scientists led by Fermilab announced mounting evidence that a tiny subatomic particle seems to be disobeying the known laws of physics.
From China Science News, Yunnan.cn (China), April 1, 2021: The Muon g-2 experiment conducted at the Fermilab will soon announce the results after 20 years of waiting.
