The ‘X17’ particle: Scientists may have discovered the fifth force of nature

"In 2016, observations from Hungarian researchers suggested the existence of an unknown type of subatomic particle. Subsequent analyses suggested that this particle was a new type of boson, the existence of which could help explain dark matter and other phenomena in the universe. A new paper is currently awaiting peer review."

#Comment: The slow motion collapse of the cult of the standard model and materialism continues. The Fifth Force (no, not that bad scifi movie 'The 5th Element') or any other magical quick fix most likely won't change that. In infinity, there is always one more mysterious particle waiting to be discovered - a sisyphusian endeavor. In summary, "I got 99 problems but a X17 ain't one". #Science #Space
