[particle] Tau leptons have a lifetime of {val|2.9|e=-13|u=s} and a mass of {val|1776.82|u=MeV/c2} (compared to {val|105.7|u=MeV/c2} for muons and {val|0.511|u=MeV/c2} for electrons). Since their interactions are very similar to those of the electron, a tau can be thought of as a much heavier version of the electron. Because of their greate...
