    The Standard Model is a hodge-podge of quite ad-hoc field theories, and certainly can't lay claim to being the final answer to everything that goes on in the particle zoo. It is quite successful in its own right, but we have already known for a long time that it has weaknesses, and cannot explain certain things we observe. If Lepton universality is violated, then this will just add another clue that there has to be a better model somehow.

    But first, let us wait and see if these results can be validated and independently verified.
