Starting next Monday, July 31, Fermilab will welcome more than 600 of our colleagues from the particle physics community to the 2017 meeting of the American Physical Society’s Division of Particles and Fields.
What’s the lab’s plan? Let Fermilab employees tell you themselves with the interactive strategic plan website.
A groundbreaking ceremony held at the Sanford Underground Research Facility in Lead, South Dakota, marks the start of construction of a massive international experiment that could change our understanding of the universe.
The construction of ProtoDUNE at CERN continues, and as you can see, it’s got a shiny, metallic interior.
Fermilab’s labwide flexible work program rolled out in March 2014. We are happy to report that since the rollout, many employees have successfully participated in the program.
Fermilab employees and users will be able to participate in the groundbreaking ceremony in Ramsey Auditorium via live video. For those not able to attend, watch the ceremony through livestream.
A renowned physicist, famed former Fermilab Director Leon Lederman was everyman to the kids he met. Fermilab’s Dee Hahn recounts how Lederman entertained the children at the Fermilab daycare center.
I took my 12-year-old daughter and her friend to see the movie “Hidden Figures” last winter. The film really hit a nerve with her and sparked several candid conversations about diversity.
SCIENCE AND SYMMETRY
A large sensitive particle detector, placed in an intense particle beam and equipped with a mechanism to suppress the Standard Model interactions, could unveil new, dark matter particles.
A theory about gravity challenges our understanding of the universe.
Once a year the Black Hills come alive with the sounds of science.
When you hear the term “radiation,” do you think about a man bitten by a radioactive spider or irradiated by gamma rays? In this 10-minute video, scientist Don Lincoln talks about the gamut of radiation levels, from safe to harmful (and cinematically enhanced).
More than a thousand million years before dinosaurs roamed Earth, a ripple in space was spreading through the universe.
The late artist June Schwarcz found inspiration in some unusual wrapping paper her husband brought home from the lab.

From Science, July 21, 2017: To build the modular detector, workers have to carve out massive caverns 1,480 meters underground, haul out stone that weighs as much as a dozen aircraft carries, and truck in millions of liters of frigid liquid argon. On July 21, officials gathered deep underground to turn the first few shovels of stone.
