The deuteron too poses a mystery

The deuteron — one of the simplest atomic nuclei, consisting of just one proton and one neutron — is considerably smaller than previously thought. The new result is consistent with a 2010 study, in which the researchers measured the proton and found a significantly smaller value than previous research using different experimental methods.
