Evaluating scientific claims

Six questions physicists ask when evaluating scientific claims

Interesting article, not writing much as to avoid influencing the reading of this. Lets support good Evidence based science.

Quantum science & technology: Highlights of 2021

Just found this, so making a final post for today. These are some of the highlights in the world of Physics in 2021. Lots of things happened in 2021, so lets hope 2022 is equally as exciting.

I have added a link to the discourse forum and also a link to the Tuxiversity science thread, so you can discuss courses and other options for learning.

Muon g-2 experiment finds strong evidence for new physics

Just sharing this video posted by Fermilab to dioide.zone on Peertube. This is a really nice, beginner friendly explanation.

The first results from the Muon g-2 experiment hosted at Fermilab show fundamental particles called muons behaving in a way not predicted by the Standard Model of particle physics. Announced on April 7, 2021, these results confirm and strengthen the findings of an earlier experiment of the same name performed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Combined, the two results show strong evidence that our best theoretical model of the subatomic world is incomplete. One potential explanation would be the existence of undiscovered particles or forces. This video explains what a muon is, how the Muon g-2 experiment works, and the significance of this result.

A Huge Number of Rogue Supermassive Black Holes Are Wandering The Universe

From what I have managed to read on this, very interesting, there is so much out there yet to discover. Would be great to get access to the above paper, I will ask on the Open University forums if I have access given I am Alumni.

It does highlight the need for open access to science journals. A few posts on this coming up.

What is a particle?

Another interesting item I just found on Mastodon. A post with a link to quanta magazine on an article asking the very question above.

It is a very interesting and engaging article, great for anyone probably studying science from GCSE to A'level or above. I have added a link to discourse and a link to a discussion.
