Experimental Particle Research Suggests Standard Model Violations

An article in Scientific American reports that recent experiments carried out in the United States, Switzerland and Japan suggest that three particles: electrons, muons and tau leptons maybe violating the Standard Model, which scientists say could lead to a huge and revolutionary shakeup in the world of physics

“The evidence comes from electrons and their more massive cousins, muons and tau leptons. According to the Standard Model, these three particles should behave like differently sized but otherwise identical triplets. But three experiments have produced growing evidence—including results announced in just the last few months—that the particles react differently to some as-yet mysterious influence. The findings are not yet conclusive, but if they hold up, “it would be a complete revolution,” says California Institute of Technology theorist Mark Wise.”

    Finally playing catchup? Or admitting what they already knew… as slowly as possible?

    Randel Mills had much to show very closely along these lines in his theory. In 1990. And its still in his theory. Much like the three high points in the graph from the Cosmic Background Radiation experiment. Standard Model had very little to explain those three points. Randell explains them in great detail and three more peaks are predicted by his theory and why they are there and what it means in his prediction of the infinitely oscillating universe every trillion years. When they catch up with that, then the Standard Model scientists will have some explaining to do. But that will only happen when they and Randell Mills are gone and another better theory will overtake even Mills. Mills has many predictions in his theory. That have either been coinfirmed by the Standard Model years after Mills published his theory or has led to several “impossible ” inventions, the Suncell, highly accurate molecular modeling, antigravity, extemely inert plastics and a few other weird things that should not work according to the Standard Model and QM.”And that is the way it is” :Walter Cronkite- journalist CBS Evening News

    /* If the Standard Model is right, two of the types of decays examined by the BaBar team should produce taus just 25 to 30 percent as often as electrons, which are lighter and thus easier to make. But that is not
    what the team saw. Taus were far more common than they should have been, hinting at a difference between taus and electrons beyond their masses. */

    The very dense objects have increased concentration of dark matter around them, which serves like their glue. Similar effect applies to microscale, where it’s known as a Casimir force. At the nuclear scale this force is called Yukawa force and it’s known long time already. In essence it’s an indicia of stabilization of particles with extradimensions.

      Zephir, is that your way of saying that R. Mills may be right? (Mills says that dark matter is hydrino’s).

      • Zephir

        Casimir force isn’t result of hydrinos, but shielding of virtual photons in vacuum with massive objects. The more dense and heavy objects, the better shielding, the stronger the gluing force is. Maybe portion of hot dark matter is formed with hydrinos (I’m rather skeptical about it), but the cold dark matter formation is dynamic effect during shielding of collinear massive bodies (like the Allais effect during solar eclipses) so it can form at some place and disappear from somewhere else. Hydrinos are permanent particles, not shielding effects, so they cannot disappear spontaneously, once the objects aren’t collinear anymore.
