Aug 16, 2023

The Sun is showering us with far more gamma rays than anticipated according to new measurements from a Cerenkov radiation detector in Mexico. The way those gamma rays are produced is very cool. Also cool: data continue to suggest a significant problem with the so-called standard model of particle physics. Muons are misbehaving, and it may suggest a fifth, previously undescribed and unknown, force of nature. Check out all that cool stuff, silly sponsors and trivia, and space news on this episode of Walkabout the Galaxy.
