From the Pittsburgh Computing Center, Oct. 10, 2018: Fermilab’s Dirk Hufnagel is quoted in this piece on the Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center now supplying computation for the LHC. Fermilab scientists working on the CMS experiment, in collaboration with the Open Science Grid, have begun analyzing data LHC data using PSC’s Bridges supercomputer.
From Gizmodo, Sept. 11, 2018: The Large Hadron Collider started up in 2008, and in 2012, LHC scientists announced the discovery of the Higgs boson. Here’s what else is happening at the famous collider. Recent CMS spokesperson and Fermilab scientist Joel Butler comments.
From Science, Sept. 13, 2018: At a recent workshop at Fermilab, more than 100 physicists gathered to hone the conceptual tools needed for the long search for collisions that produce not just one Higgs boson, but two. Fermilab scientists Marcela Carena and Caterina Vernieri, as well as others on CMS and ATLAS, comment on the plan.
From Live Science, Sept. 10, 2018: Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln recounts the early days of the LHC and looks to the future of the world’s largest atom smasher.
From The Conversation, Sept. 7, 2018: On the occasion of 10 years of Large Hadron Collider operations, Fermilab visiting scientist and Florida State University professor Todd Adams gives an overview of science at the LHC.
From Kane County Chronicle, Aug. 30, 2018: Fermilab scientists have played a role in the recent discovery of the Higgs boson transforming into bottom quarks as it decays. The breakthrough was described in a joint announcement from the Large Hadron Collider experiment collaborations ATLAS and CMS at CERN.
From CNET, Aug. 30, 2018: This explainer on the latest Higgs boson result from ATLAS and CMS quotes Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln.
From Live Science, Aug. 28, 2018: Fermilab and CMS scientist Don Lincoln explains the latest exciting result from the Large Hadron Collider: ATLAS and CMS’s first unambiguous observation of Higgs bosons decaying into a matter-antimatter pair of bottom quarks. Surprisingly, the Higgs bosons decay most often in this way.
