Fermilab is America’s particle physics and accelerator laboratory. Our vision is to solve the mysteries of matter, energy, space and time for the benefit of all.

It’s baby bison time at Fermilab!

On Wednesday, April 18, baby bison season officially began at Fermilab. The first calf of the year was born in the early morning hours, with a second appearing before noon. Neighbors are welcome to visit with the newborns.

Fermilab in the news

From APS’s Physics, April 9, 2018: Thanks to unprecedented detection sensitivity, ADMX, of which Fermilab is a collaborating member, has been able to probe, for the first time, the parameter space favored by both of the two most popular axion dark matter models.

From Science, April 9, 2018: The Axion Dark Matter Experiment (ADMX) at the University of Washington and of which Fermilab is a collaborating institution, has finally reached the sensitivity needed to detect axions if they make up dark matter, physicists report today in Physical Review Letters.

From Gizmodo, April 9, 2018: Some folks are excited about an especially tiny (and especially weird) dark matter candidate that happens to be named after a laundry detergent: the axion. Fermilab is a collaborator on the Axion Dark Matter eXperiment, and scientists on ADMX at the University of Washington think they’re ready to spot this theoretical particle.
