2022, The Next Revolution in Physics

I'm putting the finishing touches on my new book THE NEW NUCLEAR PHYSICS. In two weeks I will be submitting the book to publishers, to find one that is interested in publishing it.

On one of the book's introductory opening pages is this humble prophecy, about the fate of theoretical physics: 2022, New Physics Revolution

The value of the proton radius from the scattering proton-muon will be announced at the end of 2022, and it will set off the new revolution in theoretical physics. On June 16, 2021, was announced the status of the Project Muse:

Current plan and schedule

- We will start production data in September - December 2021

- Further plan includes 6 months of data taking in 2022 and 3 months in 2023

It's in the page 20 of this link:


In the page 023.5 of “MUSE: The MUon Scattering Experiment”, by E. Cline1, J. Bernauer1,2, E. J. Downie3 and R. Gilman4, available in


the prediction of the disclosure of the measured value of the proton radius is presented, as follows:

 “A test of the full MUSE system in December 2019 led to several planned upgrades to make the system more robust. Due to the ongoing international public health crisis and its resulting impact on international travel, we were only able to partially complete the upgrades during 2020. We plan to complete the upgrades and start MUSE production data taking in 2021. With 12 months of data taking and analysis to be performed, we anticipate publication of first results in 2023/24. MUSE will be the first experiment to measure elastic muon-proton scattering in an appropriate kinematic region, with a precision sufficient to address the proton radius puzzle. The corresponding results for the simultaneously-measured electron scattering, will put a strong constraint on potential systematic uncertainties, and may help settle the discrepancies between the Mainz and PRad results. MUSE will be the only experiment that can directly measure with its own data the difference between electron and muon extractions of the radius, making it highly compelling.”

A value measured by Project MUSE, below 0.80 fm, will require new foundations for physics, implying a profound revolution.

But the community of physicists is convinced that the value of the radius of the proton, measured by the proton-muon scattering, will be between 0.875 and 0.83 fm. And that this result will not be the trigger for a new revolution in physics. So where does the author of this book get his certainty that the results of Project MUSE will spark a new revolution in physics?

In the author's article, "Calculation of a proton radius to be measured in the Project MUSE", published by the journal Physics Essays in 2018, calculations are presented that predict that the radius measured by the proton-muon scattering will be between 0.616 fm and 0.722 fm. But it is not these calculations by the author, in the article published in 2018 by Physics Essays, that provide the author with the certainty that the proton radius, measured by the proton-muon scattering, will be below 0.80 fm.

The author's certainty that the radius measured by the proton-muon scattering will be below 0.80 fm comes from two sources:

     1 - Calculations of the proton radius within the structures of 1H2, 1H3, and 2He3, from the mass defect of these three nuclei, in a procedure that does not exist in current physics, in which the mass defect is a phantasmagoric phenomenon, since in the current physics there is not any physical mechanism from which the mass defect occurs. In current physics, the mass defect is only calculated, by using the Einstein’s equation E= mc², but the physicists do not know from which physical mechanism the mass defect comes from. The author discovered that the mass defect connects the shrinkage of the proton radius (within atomic nuclei) to the mass defect, to the magnetic moment, and to the isotopic mass, and proved it by calculations, exposed in the book Subtle is the Math, published in October 2021.

     2 - Experiment carried out at the Paul Scherrer Institute, published by Nature in 2021, which measured the radius of helium-4, obtaining the value 1,67824 fm. On page 487 of the book Subtle is the Math, a calculation is presented showing that, for helium-4 to have this radius, the radius of the proton within the structure of helium-4 must be equal to 0.69515 fm. This value is close to the radius of the proton within the structures of the nuclei 1H2, 1H3, and 2He3, whose values are respectively 0.6644 fm, 0.7388 fm and 0.64154 fm, calculated on pages 184, 187, and 190 of the book. The article in which these calculations are presented was rejected by the nuclear physics journal European Physical Journal A, on December 14, 2019, as shown on page 177 of the book, showing the dashboard:

When the results of Project MUSE are released, physicists will realize that the foundations of physics will have to change. And they will understand that they will have to take the author's findings seriously, and that they will be useful in deciding which fundamental laws adopted in current theories should be rejected, and which new fundamental laws should be adopted.
