Scientific breakthrough could be as simple as measuring the wobble of a muon

This past week was an exciting one for scientists. No, not only because of the breathtaking launch of SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket, but also because a new, ultra-precise, scientific facility is beginning operations at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, just outside Chicago. The facility, called the g-2 experiment (pronounced “g minus 2”) could lead to the world’s scientific community rewriting the textbooks.
