Scientists may have discovered the fifth force of nature


It's not the first time researchers claim to have caught a glimpse of it.

Despite the apparent complexity within the universe, there remain just four fundamental forces: Gravitational force, Electromagnetic force, Weak nuclear force, Strong Nuclear Force. These forces are responsible for all interactions known to science.

But, according to scientists, there may be other forces that have gone unnoticed. Such forces may be responsible for the behavior of the so far unknown particles that constitute dark matter. They could potentially exert the most subtle effects on the forces we are more familiar with.

Now, scientists at Hungary’s Atomki Nuclear Research Institute claimed that they might have discovered substantial evidence of a previously unknown fifth fundamental force of nature.

In 2015, Attila Krasznahorkay, at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences’ Institute for Nuclear Research in Debrecen, Hungary, claimed that they had found evidence for a new particle. During an experiment, they had spotted an anomaly in radioactive decay that could be the signature of a previously unknown fifth fundamental force of nature. But that study went largely overlooked.

1. The more we learn, the more we find that we do not know.

4. Old news...

Bruce Willis found the Fifth Element a long time ago.

Sorry, I couldn't help myself.

Love all your post Judi
