Fermilab’s beginnings can be traced to a 1963 report by a panel of U.S. scientists led by Norman Ramsey. In the 50 years since, Fermilab has grown to a laboratory of 1,800 employees, and scientists from 44 countries come to Fermilab to participate in its forefront particle physics programs.

Fermilab’s partnership with the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre in Mumbai, India, recently bore its first fruit: preproduction magnets designed and built at the India laboratory. The magnets were installed and tested at the Fermilab PIP-II Injector Test Accelerator in late March.
