From Northern Star, Sept. 15, 2016: Dan Boyden, third year physics graduate at Northern Illinois University, is hoping to be sent to Switzerland to work hands-on for DUNE, an international particle experiment including more than 140 labs and universities across 27 countries.

From Nature, Aug. 19, 2016: The next steps for particle physics now seem less certain, as discussions at the International Conference on High Energy Physics (ICHEP) suggest. Much hinges on whether the LHC unearths phenomena that fall outside the standard model of particle physics and whether China’s plans to build an LHC successor move forward.

From Berkeley Lab, Aug. 9, 2016: DESI, the Dark Energy Spectroscopic Instrument, will measure light from 35 million galaxies to provide new clues about dark energy. Fermilab is a collaborator on the Berkeley Lab project.
