There are a few people in the history of physics who have made insights that have revolutionized our understanding of the interactions of math and physics and given us real insights into the meaning of our theories. Don Lincoln tells us of the tale of Emmy Noether – one of the most significant geniuses of the last century.
From Physics Today, July 1, 2018: Fermilab scientist Vladimir Shiltsev, who has worked with the journal Physics–Uspekhi for almost four decades, provides a brief history of the journal, whose centennial was in April 2018.
From ABC7 Chicago, June 10, 2018: Fermilab is featured on ABC show Built to Last, picked up by dozens of ABC affiliates. The 13-minute segment includes interviews with Tim Meyer, Valerie Higgins and Rhonda Merchut. Scroll to episode 5. Fermilab segment starts at 1:31.
From Live Science, June 18, 2018: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln gives the lowdown on how scientists discovered neutrino oscillation, leading into MiniBooNE’s latest measurement related to the sterile neutrino.
From APS Physics, April 2018: Over the last five decades, Fermilab scientists have made some of the most fundamental discoveries in particle physics. But the facility may never have been built had a handful of physicists — chief among them the lab’s first director, Robert R. Wilson — not convinced the U.S. Congress of the project’s value.
From Gizmodo, Dec. 18, 2017: Bob Kephart, Jonathan Lewis, John Peoples and other scientists talk about the reuse of steel from warships in particle physics experiments.
