From The New York Times, Oct. 16, 2017: This is the first time LIGO has discovered anything that regular astronomers could see and study. One of the group of astronomers who spotted the speck of light was led by Marcelle Soares-Santos of Brandeis University and using the Dark Energy Camera.
From Scientific American, Sept. 19, 2017: Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer, Deputy Director Joe Lykken, DUNE co-spokesperson Mark Thomson, theorist Stephen Parke and Northwestern University’s André de Gouvêa help explain how DUNE, the largest experiment ever to probe mysterious neutrinos, could point the way to new physics.
From CERN Courier, Sept. 22, 2017: The DUNE far detector will be the largest liquid-argon neutrino detector ever built, comprising four cryostats holding 68,000 tons of liquid. Prototype detectors called protoDUNE are being built at CERN.
From Naperville Community Television, Sept. 23, 2017: With plenty to see and do, everyone was busy with interactive demonstrations, family-friendly experiments, and even special shows with Mr. Freeze. View NCT’s two-minute video.
From The Beacon-News, Sept. 23, 2017: Batavia’s Fermilab celebrated its 50th anniversary Saturday by holding the biggest open house it’s had in two decades.
From Science, Sept. 20, 2017: UK pledges $88 million to gigantic U.S. particle physics experiment — DUNE.
From Nature, Sept. 5, 2017: Maps of the cosmic microwave background have become iconic representations of the early universe. But when the Dark Energy Survey collaboration unveiled the analysis of their first year of data last month, many felt that a new era had started.
From How Stuff Works, Aug. 25, 2017: DUNE will entail shooting a powerful beam of neutrinos through Earth’s mantle and perhaps unlocking some of our universe’s greatest mysteries in the process.
From Forbes, Aug. 29, 2017: Latest results from the five year long Dark Energy Survey puts the Standard Model of our universe under the most precise test yet.
From USA Today, Aug. 9, 2017: Fermilab’s Bonnie Fleming and Chris Mossey talk about DUNE, LBNF, and how we can answers to questions about our universe may depend on once again striking gold in a mine buried a mile underground in rural South Dakota.
