From Wired UK, Sept. 28, 2018: Fermilab scientist Dan Hooper is quoted in this article on dark matter and the world’s efforts to identify it.
From Live Science, Oct. 4, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln offers a personal glimpse of the man who was the lab’s director when Lincoln first arrived at Fermilab. “When his Nobel Prize was announced in 1988, my first thought was, ‘What for?’ That wasn’t because I couldn’t think of an accomplishment of his worth the prize, but rather, I couldn’t decide which one.”
From NRC, Sept. 19, 2018: Een nieuwe detector moet helpen begrijpen waarom materie en antimaterie elkaar niet onmiddellijk opheffen.
From The Beacon-News, Oct. 3, 2018: About Lederman, Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer said, ““His impact on particle physics will easily impact us for the next few decades and we will not see another like him in our lifetime.”
From Physics World, Oct. 4, 2018: “[Lederman’s] leadership helped to shape the field of particle physics, designing, building and operating the Tevatron and positioning the laboratory to become a world leader in accelerator and neutrino science,” says current Fermilab director Nigel Lockyer.
From Corriere Adriatico, Oct. 4, 2018: E’ suo il termine “particella di Dio”: addio al fisico statunitense Leon Max Lederman, premio Nobel per la Fisica nel 1988 per i suoi studi sui neutrini, appassionato divulgatore scientifico. E’ morto ieri all’età di 96 anni a Rexburg, città nello stato dell’Idaho.
From Bloomberg News, Oct. 3, 2018: In 1989, he retired as director of the Fermilab, where he had headed a team that discovered the bottom quark, one of the six types of the elementary quark particle, in 1977.
From WTTW’s Chicago Tonight, Oct. 3, 2018: This 6-minute segment covers Lederman’s expansive career, including his 1988 Nobel Prize for the discovery of the muon neutrino, one of the building blocks of matter.
From Science News, Oct. 3, 2018: His work revealed the existence of multiple new elementary particles — with names like the muon neutrino and the bottom quark — showing that the realm of the infinitesimal was more complex than previously thought.
From The New York Times, Oct. 3, 2018: Leon Lederman, whose ingenious experiments with particle accelerators deepened science’s understanding of the subatomic world, died early Wednesday in Rexburg, Idaho. He was 96.
