To keep your brain sharp with quick daily math & science puzzles, head to video is about how to create muons in a particle accelerator via bombardment of heavy nuclei with protons, which results in creation of charged pions (plus and minus). The pions then decay into muons and mu neutrinos, and the muons then decay into electrons or positrons and more neutrinos. Muons also form in the upper atmosphere due to cosmic rays, and the uses of muons includes experimental tests of time dilation in special relativity, catalyzing muonic cold nuclear fusion, and more.Muons on wikipedia: MinutePhysics on Patreon! to Patreon Supporters: is on twitter - @minutephysicsAnd facebook - Google+ (does anyone use this any more?) - Physics provides an energetic and entertaining view of old and new problems in physics -- all in a minute!Created by Henry Reich
