Mass of rare particle may conflict with ‘standard model,’ signaling new physics

Published April 7, 2022


Science magazine interviewed Doreen Wackeroth in article how a “rare particle may conflict with standard model signaling new physics."  The discrepancy could hint at particles not included in the 40-year-old theory, said Wackeroth.” “I’m very excited about the result!” She added: “What does it mean? That’s the next big question.” Physicists have spotted a couple of other small anomalies that suggest the standard model may finally be cracking, she says.
