Standard Model

From The Hamden Journal, January 16, 2022: With the Standard Model explaining the fundamental physics of how the universe works, experimental physicists are constantly probing for cracks in the model’s foundations. So far, it has remained the model of fundamental physics despite many experiments in 2021 that probed the Standard Model 2021 like Muon g-2.

From Business AM (Belgium), January 1, 2022: In 2021, physicists around the world conducted some interesting experiments examining the Standard Model and ways it can’t explain every mystery of the universe. Last April, members of the Muon g-2 experiment at Fermilab announced their first measurement of the muon’s magnetic moment. This experiment was important was because the measurement did not perfectly match the Standard Model’s prediction of the magnetic moment.

From The Conversation, December 21, 2021: Aaron McGowan, Principal Lecturer in Physics and Astronomy at the Rochester Institute of Technology explores research in 2021 in which physicists around the world ran a number of experiments that probed the Standard Model. From Higgs Boson, to Muon g-2 and the restart of the LHC at CERN, McGowan highlights some of the ways the Standard Model fails to explain every mystery of the universe.

From Discover Magazine, December 19, 2021: In April, an international collaboration of more than 200 scientists, led by Fermilab reported findings that may open a door to physics that transcends the Standard Model. Muon g-2’s magnetic moment goes beyond the Standard Model.
