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.
From Physicsworld, June 4, 2018: Physicists working on the Mini Booster Neutrino Experiment (MiniBooNE) at Fermilab in the US have released new results that they argue provide strong evidence for the existence of a new type of particle known as a sterile neutrino.
From Quanta, June 1, 2018: MiniBooNE, a Fermilab experiment, has detected far more electron neutrinos than predicted — a possible harbinger of a revolutionary new elementary particle called the sterile neutrino, though many physicists remain skeptical.
From Science News, June 1, 2018: The MiniBooNE experiment at Fermilab found more interactions of neutrinos and antineutrinos than expected, mirroring a puzzling excess found more than two decades ago.
From PBS’s NOVA Wonders, May 30, 2018: Fermilab’s Josh Frieman and Brian Nord appear in this episode on the dark sector.
From The New York Times, May 28, 2018: At CERN in Switzerland and Fermilab in Illinois, there is always a sense of discovery — about the past, present and future.
