Theyve discovered a "Fifth force" via the vectoral boson. If its even possible (true needs much higher repeatability), it woud hel the stndrd model to explain things like dark matter.
It was discovered by an Irvine team with a Brit bunch of colleagues doing the experiments in parallel (I believe it was UK). The "discovery of the vector boson" is from measurements of the path of the first several decay paths of particles from Be8.
Since its discovery, its been refuted , backed, severely refuted and repeqted, by several independent research groups.
If it works, therell be enough Nobel prizes to go around and the AEN fund
will be depleted if the "equal prizes all around" doesnt stop.
