Radio Città Fujiko will feature an interview with yours truly tomorrow, at 10.30AM italian time. The blog of the scientific program called “Caccia al fotone” announces it in a nice post, which you can visit here.
Here is a quick-and-dirty translation:
A “ghost event” at the Tevatron”
10 years of work, a mysterious result, an italian researcher and a lot of hope are already good ingredients to create a “scientific case”. However… this news is much more well known abroad than in Italy…. In one of the two experiments at the Tevatron, the synchrotron operating at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, in the United States, some muons have crept out in a unknown way. Not muons from the standard model, generated by proton and antiproton collisions, but some more, and, in particular, from a direction that appears to be different from the collision point. In technical terms: muons that appear to have a different impact parameter.
About this, and a lot more, we will discuss in real time with Tommaso Dorigo, researcher at CDF, author of the paper, and author of one of the scientific blogs most visited in the blogosphere. Hands to your SMS and the PC for your curiosity!
