An illustration of the three neutrino mass states and the three flavors that mix to make them up (electron, muon and tau), as they were previously though to mix. NOvA's new result shows that the third mass state may not have equal amounts of muon (yellow jellybeans) and tau (blue jellybeans) flavors.

NOvA scientists have seen evidence that one of the three neutrino mass states might not include equal parts of muon and tau flavor, as previously thought. Scientists refer to this as “nonmaximal mixing,” and NOvA’s result is the first hint that this may be the case for the third mass state.

Members of Weird Science educate and entertain at Fermilab's annual Wonders of Science show.

Fermilab’s annual Wonders of Science show is scheduled for Sunday, April 17. This year’s theme is astronomy, and the show will feature Weird Science, a group of current and retired high school teachers who have been recognized locally and nationally for their ability to engage young minds.

Fermilab’s Family Open House is more than just an annual tradition. It’s a chance for the whole family to spend an afternoon learning about science in a hands-on way and have fun doing it. The Open House is earlier than usual this year – on Sunday, Jan. 31 from 1-5 p.m. – but it promises the same sense of wonder you’ve come to expect.
