The Standard Model of Physics states that the universe is made up of four fundamental forces: gravity, electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force, and the weak nuclear force (the latter has nothing to do with the effects of a nuclear explosion in your city). However, scientists, who never cease to amaze mankind, believe that there may actually be five forces.
Fermilab announces that it is about to discover the fifth fundamental power
Fermilab’s muon g-2 group, which has a center near Chicago, published an article in Physical Review Letters about the results of a study on muons. These particles, from all that is known, did not behave as they should, and they concluded that this could only be due to an as yet unknown fifth force.
It should be noted that it was not a single experiment or result that led them to this discovery, which is even more surprising than the discovery of new living things. Two years ago, they found that muons tended to behave in ways they weren’t supposed to and began to doubt the Standard Model, leading them to find more evidence for this fifth force. However, it is, of course, not yet conclusive, and further experiments and verification are needed to confirm it. Although, of course, this does not stop scientists from being excited about the possibility of such an important discovery in the field of physics.
What are the basic powers?
According to the Standard Model of Particle Physics, the universe consists of four forces: gravitation, electromagnetic force, strong nuclear force, and weak nuclear force. These four forces relate to interactions between particles, and the term fundamental,” in short, refers to the fact that all interactions in the universe can be reduced to one of these four forces.
However, if the Muon g-2 studies progress as expected, it is possible that the Standard Model will undergo very important changes (which are common in the world of science) when a fifth force is added. Enough to change our understanding of the universe.
