Fermilab Says Particle Is Heavy Enough to Break the Standard Model | Quanta Magazine
A new analysis of W bosons suggests these particles are significantly heavier than predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics.
“The painstaking work of experimentalists in honing their precision measurements makes researchers more optimistic that a long-awaited breakthrough is coming.
“It overall just feels to me like we’re getting close to the point where something’s going to break,” said El-Khadra. “We’re getting close to really seeing beyond the Standard Model.””Posted on 2022-04-08T06:46:33+0000
