  "description": "Recently a 6.8\u03c3 anomaly has been reported in the opening angle and invariant mass distributions of e+e- pairs produced in Be8 nuclear transitions. The data are explained by a 17 MeV vector gauge boson X that is produced in the decay of an excited state to the ground state, Be*8\u2192Be8\u2009X, and then decays through X\u2192e+e-. The X boson mediates a fifth force with a characteristic range of 12 fm and has millicharged couplings to up and down quarks and electrons, and a proton coupling that is suppressed relative to neutrons. The protophobic X boson may also alleviate the current 3.6\u03c3 discrepancy between the predicted and measured values of the muon's anomalous magnetic moment.",
