When the results of an experiment dont match predictions made by the best theory of the day, something is off.
Fifteen years ago, physicists at Brookhaven National Laboratory discovered something perplexing. Muons a type of subatomic particle were moving in unexpected ways that didnt match theoretical predictions. Was the theory wrong? Was the experiment off? Or, tantalizingly, was this evidence of new physics?
Physicists have been trying to solve this mystery every since.
One group from Fermilab…
