Fermilab

Don Lincoln describes what happens when a charged particle travels through a transparent material faster than light travels through that same material.

The idea of time crystals in the media come with ludicrous hopes of time travel and rumors of time portals. The reality of time crystals is a fascinating scientific advance, but it doesn’t rise to the level of the hype.

In this 4-minute video, Antonio Ereditato, DUNE liaison for Swiss funding agencies, discusses Switzerland’s participation in the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

A new camera for the South Pole Telescope, called SPT-3G, will aid scientists in creating the deepest, most sensitive map yet of the cosmic microwave background, allowing them to peer more closely into the era of the universe just after the Big Bang.

There are dozens and dozens of particle names, and many names can apply to one particle, or a single name can apply to many particles. It’s all very confusing. Fermilab Don Lincoln made this 10-minute video to help you sort it all out.

Fermilab is upgrading its accelerator complex under the upcoming Proton Improvement Plan II, or PIP-II. The heart of the project is a superconducting linear accelerator, which will help generate intense proton beams for the lab’s experiments. Follow the PIP-II beam as it accelerates to higher energies.

There are a few people in the history of physics who have made insights that have revolutionized our understanding of the interactions of math and physics and given us real insights into the meaning of our theories. Don Lincoln tells us of the tale of Emmy Noether – one of the most significant geniuses of the last century.
