Scientists find “strong evidence” for new mystery sub-atomic force of nature

BBC, 08 Apr 2021
An international team of scientists, working on a project in the United States, say they have discovered strong evidence for the existence of a new force of nature.

They say some sub-atomic particles - called muons - don't behave in a way predicted by current theories of physics.

The British funders of the research say that scientists are “on the precipice of a new era of physics”.
