Could a small research team in Hungary have found a new fundamental force of nature? If they did, the implications for particle physics would be HUGE. After the recent disappointment of the 750 GeV diphoton bump, the broader physics community is taking a measured approach towards the new findings. 3rd Rock spoke with one of the physicists from the UC Irvine team who recently validated the anomaly to get a little more background on their tantalizing findings.
