Alpha and g minus two
Two months ago an experiment in Berkeley announced a new ultra-precise measurement of the fine structure constant α. This wasn't much noticed because the paper is not on arXiv, and moreover this kind of research is filed under metrology , which is easily co...

Can MiniBooNE be right?
The experimental situation in neutrino physics is confusing. One one hand, a host of neutrino experiments has established a consistent picture where the neutrino mass eigenstates are mixtures of the 3 Standard Model neutrino flavors νe, νμ, ντ. The measured...

WIMPs after XENON1T
After today's update from the XENON1T experiment, the situation on the front of direct detection of WIMP dark matter is as follows WIMP can be loosely defined as a dark matter particle with mass in the 1 GeV - 10 TeV range and significant interactions with ...

Proton's weak charge, and what's it for
In the particle world the LHC still attracts the most attention, but in parallel there is ongoing progress at the low-energy frontier. A new episode in that story is the Qweak experiment in Jefferson Lab in the US, which just published their final results. ...

Dark Matter goes sub-GeV
It must have been great to be a particle physicist in the 1990s. Everything was simple and clear then. They knew that, at the most fundamental level, nature was described by one of the five superstring theories which, at low energies, reduced to the Minimal...

Massive Gravity, or You Only Live Twice
Proving Einstein wrong is the ultimate ambition of every crackpot and physicist alike. In particular, Einstein's theory of general relativity has been a victim of constant harassment. That is to say, it is trivial to modify gravity at large energies (short ...

Per kaons ad astra
NA62 is a precision experiment going on at CERN right now. From their name you wouldn't suspect that they're doing anything noteworthy: the collaboration was running in the contest for the most unimaginative name, only narrowly losing to CMS...  NA62 employ...

Singularity is now
Artificial intelligence (AI) is entering into our lives.  It's been 20 years now since the watershed moment of Deep Blue versus Garry Kasparov.  Today, people study the games of AlphaGo against itself to get a glimpse of what a superior intelligence would b...

21cm to dark matter
The EDGES discovery of the 21cm absorption line at the cosmic dawn has been widely discussed on blogs  and in popular press . Quite deservedly so.  The observation opens a new window on the epoch when the universe as we know it was just beginning. We expect...
