Recently, the 'Muon g-2' experiment at Fermilab announced a new measurement of the muon's anomalous magnetic moment with better than one-in-a-million accuracy. While confirming the earlier measurement at the Brookhaven National Lab, it has also strengthened the discrepancy with the theoretical calculations, which have also been performed with the same level of accuracy. We shall discuss the physics behind the anomalous magnetic moment of the muon and some theoretical and experimental aspects of its determination. We shall also touch upon what this discrepancy, if confirmed, would mean for our knowledge of particle physics.
