Just west of Chicago sits one of the most powerful particle physics laboratories in the world. Last week, Fermilab released findings that suggest there is more to reality than we currently understand. The findings are long-anticipated results from the Muon g-2 experiment. 

To talk more about the Muon g-2 experiment and what the findings could mean for science, The 21st was joined by a Fermilab physicist. 

Guest:

Brendan Kiburg, Physicist at Fermilab working on the g-2 (g minus 2) muon (mew-on) experiment
