According to an article published on Nature’s homepage on May 25, an extraordinary phenomenon has been discovered in Debrecen, Eastern Hungary: the fifth fundamental force in nature. Laboratories worldwide will be attempting to reproduce the results achieved in the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences (MTA Atomki).

An article in Nature says Attila Krasznahorkay and his colleagues used an electron-positron spectrometer to detect the angle correlation of electron-positron pairs produced during high energy nucleus transitions.

They found a deviation in contrast with their prognosis, which could not be explained by our current knowledge of nuclear physics. However, the results can be interpreted if the existence of a new, light-weight, neutral particle is hypothesized.

The properties of this new particle are similar to the theoretically postulated dark photon. The concept of the dark photon had been introduced to describe the interactions between dark matter particles.
