These international projects, selected during the process to plan the future of US particle physics, are all set to come online within the next 10 years.
An exciting detector workshop was recently held at Fermilab to help plan an important upgrade to CMS, one of the two large particle detectors located at the Large Hadron Collider.
Fermilab employees gathered in Ramsey Auditorium on Oct. 15 for an all-hands meeting. Here are the top five takeaways.
In this 5-minute video, INFN Vice President Antonio Masiero discusses Italy’s long history of innovation in neutrino physics and their role and expertise. They will contribute to the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility/Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.
In the 19th century some scientists thought that if we could know, at any given time, the position and velocity of every atom, we could in principle calculate the future. They believed the past determines the present, and the present determines the future.
There was an authentic and delicious Indian dinner, dandiya (stick) Indian dancing, arts and crafts, and even a mehndi (henna tattoos) station.
Our best model of particle physics explains only about 5 percent of the universe.
The idea of time crystals in the media come with ludicrous hopes of time travel and rumors of time portals. The reality of time crystals is a fascinating scientific advance, but it doesn’t rise to the level of the hype.
The girls received hands-on experience of what it’s like to work in a national lab in engineering, computing or physics and parents had a tour through the lab installations.
Representatives from industry joined physicists to present software and share ideas about the future of quantum science and technology.
To keep up with an impending astronomical increase in data about our universe, astrophysicists turn to machine learning.
Their efforts apply research from multiple disciplines to hunt for dark matter – in particular, the much sought-after axion.
Attendance at an outreach event led to a career at Fermilab, a place Lucero describes as a “little wonderful world.”
Green has always valued and supported the international character of our field and has colleagues and friends around the globe.
