Experimental results presented new information on the 3He elastic magnetic form factor at large Q2 values, particularly above Q2=32fm-2. Measurements at Q2=18.8 and 21.8fm-2 strengthen the conclusion that the first diffraction minimum is located near Q2=18fm-2, higher than the position predicted by current theories. In addition, an apparent sharp decrease observed in the form factor near Q2=35fm-2 may signal the existence of a second diffraction minimum in the vicinity of Q2=40fm-2.
