As you roast – or grill – on a beach this summer, you may be thinking the sun is hotter than usual. But of course, the sun is just as hot on a chilly winter evening; it doesn’t change.
ICARUS now sits in the path of Fermilab’s neutrino beam, a milestone that brings the detector one step closer to taking data.
A year after detecting a neutron star collision, scientists are excited for the future of multimessenger astronomy and astrophysics.
The annual awards honor individuals who have distinguished themselves by performing significant and lasting contributions to different components of the CMS experiment.
DESI, an instrument to help scientists get to the bottom of the dark energy mystery, is getting a little help from Fermilab.
An intrepid Symmetry writer and communicator at CERN navigates the landscape above the Large Hadron Collider by bicycle.
The inability of scientists to create a theory of quantum gravity arises from long-standing tensions between general relativity and quantum mechanics. There have been few approaches with any success. Don Lincoln explains one of the few promising ideas, called loop quantum gravity, in this 9-minute video.
The DOE Early Career Award will fund research and development for special technology to study the lightest and most elusive particles.
The Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment is advancing technology commonly used in dark matter experiments—and scaling it up to record-breaking sizes.
Employees will receive an all-hands message on Wednesday with additional information about the drill.
In this 4-minute video, Marzio Nessi, head of the Neutrino Platform at CERN, discusses CERN’s participation in the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
Growing up on the Crow reservation in Montana inspired JoRee LaFrance to pursue a career in hydrology.
The course gives participants a good grasp of the reconstruction process, called particle flow, that leads to the identification of each final state particle in a CMS event.
A new review in Nature chronicles the many ways machine learning is popping up in particle physics research.
