From New Scientist Netherlands, Oct. 9, 2018: De nieuwe neutrinodetector ProtoDUNE is aangezet en heeft zijn eerste metingen verricht. Deze detector is met 565 kubieke meter ongeveer zo groot als een gemeentelijk zwembad, en is het prototype voor een reuzendetector in de VS, die negentig keer zo groot wordt.
From APS News, Oct. 4, 2018: Nobel laureate, master experimenter and witty explainer dies at 96.
From Black Hills Pioneer, Sept. 25, 2018: Two years in the making, a neutrino detector built at CERN for the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment , which is being used as the prototype for the much larger Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility, detectors that will be housed at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, has recorded its first particle tracks.
From CBS Chicago, Oct. 3, 2018: Leon Lederman, an experimental physicist who won a Nobel Prize in physics for his work on subatomic particles and coined the phrase “God particle,” has died. He was 96.
From University of Chicago News, Oct. 3, 2018: University of Chicago professors Rocky Kolb and Michael Turner pay tribute to Fermilab’s second director.
From Expansiòn, en alianza con CNN, Sept. 21, 2018: La teoría de su origen nos ha dejado con una pregunta desconcertante: ¿En dónde rayos está la antimateria?, comenta Don Lincoln.
From ars technica, Oct. 3, 2018: He was a leading light of particle physics, directing one of the most prestigious physics laboratories in the world. He won the Nobel Prize and irked his physics colleagues by coining the term “the god particle” to describe the Higgs boson. That long, rich life ended the early morning of Oct. 3 when physicist Leon Lederman died of complications from dementia at the age of 96.
From NPR, Oct. 5, 2018: Astronomer Jill Tarter, chair emeritus for SETI Research at the SETI Institute in Mountain View, California, will present the lecture “A Cosmic Perspective: Searching For Aliens, Finding Ourselves” at Fermilab on Oct. 12.
From Daily Herald, Oct. 4, 2018: Nobel Prize winner. Political advocate for science education who proposed what would become Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The guy who gave an enduring nickname to the Higgs boson. Leon Lederman was that, and more.
From CNN, Sept. 21, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln explains the goals of Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment and how the ProtoDUNE detectors will validate the technology of the much larger DUNE.
