Muons: 'Strong' evidence found for a new force of nature!

Never underestimate the importance of Muons, which should have been named Catons, but it was too confusing with with common Cations. It also should be spelled as
Mewons.

This unpredicted characteristic of Mewons was only noticed when they could finally pursuade million of Mewons to run in a circle together!

Hopefully more about the Mewon will be discovered when the Large Hardon Reactor comes up again!

TAT

The muon is one of these fundamental particles; it's similar to the electron, but more than 200 times heavier.

The Muon g-2 experiment involves sending the particles around a 14-metre ring and then applying a magnetic field. Under the current laws of physics, encoded in the Standard Model, this should make the muons wobble at a certain rate.

Instead, the scientists found that muons wobbled at a faster rate than expected. This might be caused by a force of nature that's completely new to science.

Now, physicists say they have found possible signs of a fifth fundamental force of nature...

For example, gravity makes objects fall to the ground, and heavy objects behave as if they are glued to the floor.

The UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) said the result "provides strong evidence for the existence of an undiscovered sub-atomic particle or new force".

But the results from the Muon g-2 experiment don't add up to a conclusive discovery yet.

Muons, 200 times bigger than an electron, and we are very dependent on the tiny electrons!

That is an extremely persuasive argument. However, the Bovine Coalition is really milking the Word Nazis to name Moo-on.

Dependent we may be, but still...small stuff. Do these Moo-ins glow if you put them in a jar like fireflies?

Nope. They decay with a half-life of 1.56 usec, but the mass of the resulting electron and neutrinos is about the same as the original muon. So no photons produced. The neutrinos just zoom off through everything without interacting, and you would be left with a jar full of ordinary electrons.

Marie Curie found that a little Radium in a jar DID glow in the dark, but it also gave you cancer.

And only time will tell what muons might give us.
