The E949 experiment at Brookhaven National Laboratory has obtained a new result on the rare decay K+—>p+nn.

The experimental collaboration is now composed of 70 scientists from Canada, Japan, Russia (INR RAS and IHEP, Protvino) and the United States. A third event has been seen and the new branching ratio remains almost twice the SM level (although still consistent with it): BR = (1.47 + 1.30 - 0.89) x 10-10. This result comes from the phase space region above the K+—>p+p0(Kp2 ) peak. Additional data below the Kp2 peak is under analysis and may contribute comparable sensitivity.
