Exciting news from UCI Physics and Astronomy: a team led by professors Jonathan Feng and Tim Tait have made a discovery that could profoundly change the future of physics! They have found evidence of a fifth force of nature and a new particle that could have implications for the unification of forces and efforts to understand the dark matter that pervades the universe. For more information, check out this interview with Professor Tait on NPR: You can also see a collection of news coverage or check out the Physical Review Letter, 117, 071803 (2016).
