Planning the next big science machine requires consideration of both the current landscape and the distant future.

From CERN Courier, Sept. 22, 2017: The DUNE far detector will be the largest liquid-argon neutrino detector ever built, comprising four cryostats holding 68,000 tons of liquid. Prototype detectors called protoDUNE are being built at CERN.

Particle physics research is both international and collaborative, with large national laboratories working together to most efficiently advance science. Joel Butler, Fermilab distinguished scientist, is the leader of the CMS experiment at the CERN laboratory in Europe.

Fermilab’s Greg Rakness is a hero of the LHC for his work in organizing the commissioning and operations of CMS, one of the two big detectors at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.

The construction of ProtoDUNE at CERN continues, and as you can see, it’s got a shiny, metallic interior.

From CERN Courier, July 17, 2017: The ties between CERN and Fermilab are numerous and have ranged from competition between two labs at the forefront of their field to outright collaboration.
