The physics of g-2
At any time in history, a few scientific measurements disagreed with the best theoretical predictions of the time. Currently, one such discrepancy involves the measurement of the strength of the magnetic field of a subatomic particle called a muon. In this video, Fermilab’s Dr. Don Lincoln explains this mystery and sketches ongoing efforts to determine if this disagreement signifies a discovery. If it does, this measurement will mean that we will have to rewrite the textbooks.
