Proton Radius Puzzle #1

I bought a copy of Scientific American Volume 310, issue 2, February 2014, when it was on the news stands at my local grocery store.  I had not bought an actual hard copy like this in a long time.  It caught my eye, for a reason.  Richard Feynman clearly taught in his books for what to be on the look out.  And, I was on the lookout... ...and found something.

This is a very serious problem, the proton problem.  An experiment done for the sole purpose of refining the CODATA information for the proton was performed in 2010, and the results were 4% off from the old data.  

Again, it was tested in 2013, and again, the results were about 4% different that the already accepted CODATA values for the proton mass and radius.

There's a whole lotta research that has to go in to understanding the before data and the after data, and all that.  We are going to examine the problem and see where it takes us.

Using the same approach we just used to solve for the mass.radius relationship for black holes, we are going to use to solve the proton radius problem.

Well, we will solve it mathematically, however, how can we verify it experimentally?  Well, as luck would have it, CERN and other labs are already doing the work for us, as they are with the Higgs boson and all at the LHC.

I wouldn't hold your breath, because none of them are racing to tell you the latest developments.**

They are smashing together TWO protons and telling what the math says, when their math cannot even handle ONE proton.

So, hold on to your britches as we race through the Proton Radius Puzzle Resolution in one post.

Yes, this time, The Surfer intends to do as he says, IN ONE POST RESOLVE THE PROTON RADIUS PUZZLE*.
