From Positively Naperville, May 24, 2021: A report on the April 7 Muon g-2 result announcement speculating that there must be new particles or forces that we have not yet discovered.
From Quo (Spain), May 23, 2021: An interview with Pilar Hernández Gamazo to find out the scope of the muon case that will transform our understanding of the Universe. Pilar Hernández is a professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Valencia.
From RECCOM Magazine (Italy), May 17, 2021: Dan Hooper talks about the possible existence of another universe. Physicists believe the Big Bang created equal amounts of matter and antimatter in the early history of the universe – but they can’t explain how antimatter vanished. Perhaps it is not and it resides isolated in some remote regions of our universe.
From Wired, May 18, 2021: So imagine the excitement on April 7, when more than 200 physicists from seven countries convened on a Zoom call for a kind of nonexplosive gender-reveal party. What was to be disclosed was not a baby’s sex but the fate of particle physics.
From Vox, May 12, 2021: Fermilab’s Jessica Esquivel explains the results of a new experiment out of Fermilab – involving a subatomic particle wobbling weirdly – could pave the way to new ways of understanding our universe.
From Nature, May 5, 2021: The established theory of the standard model, and has passed a vast number of experimental tests with flying colors. But one such test — the determination of the magnetic moment of an elementary particle known as the muon — has resulted in a long-standing discrepancy between theory and experiment.
From the CERN Courier, May 3, 2021: Fermilab’s Muon g-2 result announcement strengthened the longstanding tension between the measured and predicted values of the muon’s anomalous magnetic moment.
From U.S. News and World Report, April 24, 2021: A team of University of Kentucky professors were part of a large-scale physics experiment at Fermilab showing results that point to a potential gap in the Standard Model of physics.
From Physics World (podcast), April 29, 2021: Fermilab’s Jessica Esquivel talks with Physics World Stories about the Muon g-2 result that offers a tantalizing glimpse of new physics beyond the Standard Model of particle physics.
From Tec Review, April 28: Tec Review interviews Fermilab’s David Tarazona about his role and experience with the Muon g-2 experiment.
