What makes the absence of antimatter puzzling? Since we know it is produced, not being able to observe it opens a host of new questions.

Listen up to learn:

  • The essence of the Muon g-2 project
  • How the medium in which a particle travels affects it
  • What the supersymmetry theory is

Chris Polly, the project manager of the Muon g-2 project, shares his work with accelerator experiments and what they may lead to.

Accelerator physics experiments have the potential to reveal an entirely new set of answers to the questions surrounding our universe. From particles winking in and out of existence to the search for antimatter, it is truly the bleeding edge.

The Muon g-2 project holds the potential to reveal some of the universe's inner workings. Using principles that have been long-established in combination with new theories, the possibilities are fascinating.
