- Review of three studies challenges a core principle of the standard model
- Fundamental particles called taus behaved strangely in all three experiments
- This suggests that a new phenomenon could exist outside of the standard model
- If true, this would radically alter our understanding of physics and the universe
A new finding could shake the very foundations of our understanding of particle physics, and the universe.
A review of three separate experiments, including one conducted at the Large Hadron Collider, has turned up ‘remarkably similar’ results.
The studies suggest that lepton universality – a fundamental assumption of the standard model – does not hold up.
Instead, they point to the existence of a new phenomenon that exists outside of the standard model of particle physics.
Earlier this year, researchers with Cern’s LHCb experiment (pictured) found ‘intriguing anomalies’, a discovery that has now been used as one of the three pieces of research included in a new Nature review. The review hints at explanations beyond the Standard Model
What to do when the weather gets warm? Make ice cream. We’ve been making “ice cream” quite often lately. Last week the temperature lingered in the low 80’s for most of the week. This week has been beautiful too…in the 70’s.
“O mundo é um ovo” ou “Que mundo pequeno!” são expressões que certamente você já usou ou ouviu em algum momento. Essas expressões são usadas quando uma situação de coincidência acontece. Um encontro de surpresa com alguém que você conhece em uma cidade diferente da sua pode ser um exemplo de coincidência. Mas o que aconteceria se soubéssemos que, na verdade, isso tem a ver com uma ciência chamada “sincronicidade”?
Mesma que pareça incrível, importantes pesquisadores estudaram e tentaram identificar as relações que podem existir entre dois fenômenos taxados como muito improváveis ou que parecem não ter conexão alguma. E não foram nomes muito desconhecidos os que tentaram dar alguma explicação para estes acontecimentos. Podemos falar de gente de renome, como Carl Jung, por exemplo, que inventou o termo “sincronicidade”.

John Goodenough, who at 94 has filed a patent application on a new kind of battery.
In 1946, a 23-year-old Army veteran named John Goodenough headed to the University of Chicago with a dream of studying physics. When he arrived, a professor warned him that he was already too old to succeed in the field.
The unconscious pattern recognition our brain is constantly performing is what leads to breakthrough moments—and you can train yourself to have more of them.
Suzy Bátiz remembers the moment because of the chill she says it put in her body. “I felt with certainty that this was an idea that needed to be born,” she remembers
It happened at a family gathering, her brother-in-law had wondered aloud at the table if there might be some way to trap toilet odor. Most of the other guests had politely ignored the musing, but in a flash Bátiz thought of aromatherapy oils. It wasn’t the aromas, per se; it was the nature of the oil itself. “Oil floats on water, and I realized it could create a barrier that would trap the odor in,” she explained. “In that moment, I knew I had discovered the answer.”
