From Black Hills Pioneer, June 4, 2018: Mike Headley, South Dakota Science and Technology Authority executive director and laboratory director, and Josh Willhite, Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility far site manager for the Sanford Underground Research Facility, updated the public on the progress being made on DUNE taking place at Fermilab in Illinois.
From Science News, June 6, 2018: A shadowy hypothetical process called “dark fusion” could be occurring throughout the cosmos, says physicist Sam McDermott of Fermilab.
From BBC News, June 6, 2018: The MiniBooNE experiment at Fermilab may have found hints of a new particle. Specifically, the data may hint at a previously undetected form of neutrino, known as a “sterile neutrino.”
From Los Alamos National Laboratory, June 6, 2018: New research results have potentially identified a fourth type of neutrino, a “sterile neutrino” particle.
From Sanford Underground Research Facility’s Deep Thoughts, June 4, 2018: Building the largest international neutrino experiment on U.S. soil requires innovative engineering solutions. Fermilab Deputy Director for LBNF Chris Mossey gives us a glimpse of the challenges of building the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility.
From Live Science, June 4, 2018: The Higgs boson appeared again at the world’s largest atom smasher — this time, alongside a top quark and an antitop quark, the heaviest known fundamental particles.
From NOVA NEXT, June 4, 2018: The CMS and ATLAS collaborations report a substantial new advance in the understanding of the Higgs boson, the particle that is responsible for giving mass to fundamental subatomic particles.
From CNN, June 4, 2018: Scientists from the CMS and ATLAS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider have observed the most massive known fundamental subatomic particle directly interacting with an energy field that gives mass to the building blocks of the universe.
From Newsweek, June 4, 2018: After years of controversy and conflicting results, MiniBooNE appears to support old results from the LSND experiment. Researchers think it might be evidence of a fabled and highly controversial elementary particle, the sterile neutrino.
From Daily Mail, June 4, 2018: MiniBooNE, a Fermilab experiment, published new results that mirror those seen from an experiment run in the 1990s at Los Alamos National Laboratory, which could be interpreted as evidence for sterile neutrinos, a theorized source of the universe’s dark matter.
