One of the most intriguing mysteries in physics is the neutrino particle. While it is abundant throughout the universe (a billion times more abundant than particles that make up stars, planets, and people), little is known about them or their purpose.
It may come as a surprise that visible matter only constitutes 4 percent of the universe’s contents. The other 96% is made of what we refer to as dark matter and dark energy.
Particle physics is often seen as a field that deals with esoteric and abstract concepts that have little bearing on everyday life. However this has been, and continues to be, far from the truth.

“The (Muon g-2) experiment is effectively measuring the magnetic strength of the muon. We needed to measure it at a higher precision and see what that difference is about and the best place to do that is at Fermilab.”
