Fermilab played the leading role in creating a new approach in cosmological research, one that involved the fusion of modern particle physics and astronomical cosmology.
Are the people at Fermilab talented? Yes. And if you doubt it, visit this year’s Fermilab employee art show to become a believer.
Marge Bardeen, educator and former head of the Fermilab Education Office, tells the story of how a number of dedicated people started the lab’s first education initiatives.
Fermilab is dedicated to keeping the amounts of tritium produced and discharged from the site as low as possible.
At Fermilab, she’s an engineer that’s helping with a critical part of the Mu2e experiment. Outside Fermilab, she’s a rocker.
A project is like a good book: As you complete one chapter you start the next, but sometimes you cannot wait and you read ahead.
The site now has more content and is focused on user-friendly site organization, along with multiple call-to-action items.
With 6,800 acres of natural habitat, Fermilab gets help from dedicated citizens who help maintain a landscape where native species flourish.
SCIENCE AND SYMMETRY
Weak force decays change the identity of a particle as well as its electrical charge. Scientists are looking for identity-changing decays with no change in electrical charge, which would point to new physics.
This month U.S. scientists embedded sophisticated new instruments in the heart of a Large Hadron Collider experiment.
Meet Hernán Quintana Godoy, the scientist who made Chile central to international astronomy.
The observation occurred just two hours after the lab’s accelerator complex switched to antineutrino delivery mode.
Astrophysicists Eric Charles and Mattia Di Mauro discuss the surprising glow of our neighbor galaxy.
As it evolves, the SLAC linear accelerator illustrates some important technologies from the history of accelerator science.
PHOTO OF THE DAY
The sandhill cranes are back. The photographer spotted about 50 of them, from a distance, on the Fermilab site on March 20.
From WDCB 90.9 FM, March 17, 2017: A sculptor from Geneva is the latest artist to become Fermilab’s artist in residence. WDCB’s Brian O’Keefe visits Jim Jenkins to talk about the mass of a snowflake, bone jazz and the inspiration of Robert Wilson.
