From Tecnomania, March 21, 2018: Esta animación muestra sobre unas bonitas imágenes aéreas el funcionamiento de los aceleradores de partículas del Fermilab –nombre coloquial del Laboratorio Nacional Fermi– que se construyó en 1967 en Illinois (Estados Unidos) hace ya la friolera de más de 50 años. Actualmente lo están «actualizando» y ampliando para llevar a cabo nuevos experimentos.

From Astronomy, Feb. 22, 2018: The supernova, dubbed DES16C2nm, was first detected back in August 2016 by the Dark Energy Survey, which is currently mapping several hundred million galaxies in order to learn more about the mysterious force known as dark energy.

From Newsweek, Feb. 21, 2018: DES162nm was first spotted in August 2016 using the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory in Chile. The investigations were part of an international collaboration known as the Dark Energy Survey—a project designed to map hundreds of millions of galaxies in a search for the mysterious force that is thought to be behind the accelerating expansion of the universe.

From Crain’s Chicago Business, Feb. 14, 2018: The U.S. House took a big step toward the next generation of research at Fermilab, authorizing a $1.8 billion project that would shoot subatomic particles from Fermilab’s facility to South Dakota.

From Brookhaven National Laboratory, Feb. 12, 2018: Fermilab scientist Bo Jayatilaka is quoted in this article on ATLAS’s measurement of the mass of the W boson, a particle that plays a weighty role in a delicate balancing act of the quantum universe.
