MicroBooNE

From Scientific American, July 5, 2018: This editorial weighs in on the latest result from the MiniBooNE experiment. The author says that, while winning experiments may soon give us clarity, at this time there is no resolution to the sterile neutrino question.

From BBC News, June 6, 2018: The MiniBooNE experiment at Fermilab may have found hints of a new particle. Specifically, the data may hint at a previously undetected form of neutrino, known as a “sterile neutrino.”

Road trip

Anxious for the safe arrival of the long-awaited vessel that would house the MicroBooNE particle detector, scientists Bonnie Fleming and Gina Rameika decide not to sit around and wait for it. Instead, they get in a car and head into neighboring towns to look for a big, school-bus-sized object being hauled by a truck.
