A New Particle or a New Force?

“Physicists at Fermilab might have found evidence of a new elementary particle or an entirely new force of nature, suggesting the nation’s biggest science experiment is about to go out with a bang.

A new analysis of 10,000 proton-antiproton collisions at the Tevatron showed a weird result a couple hundred times — the numbers do not agree with the accepted theories of elementary particles and the forces that govern them. Post-collision jets of electrons and heavy particles called W bosons did not behave as they should.”
