|Neutrino physicist Dave Schmitz sits in front of the MINERvA detector. Schmitz will give the next Physics for Everyone talk on neutrinos on April 6.|
Neutrinos have been the darlings of poetry, the destructors of the world in science-fiction films, the names of companies, rafts and more. These ghostly particles generally come from the sun and travel through nearly everything. So, how exactly does Fermilab create and study these ghostly particles?
Join Fermilab at 12:30 on Wednesday, April 6, to learn about neutrinos, including where they come from, how they fit into the field of particle physics and what neutrinos might be able to tell us about the universe. In his talk, titled “In one ear and out the other: a neutrino talk” neutrino scientist Dave Schmitz will also explain what Fermilab experiments are trying to learn from these elusive particles and how they’re getting that information.
The lecture is free and open to the public. It will take place in Ramsey Auditorium. No registration is required. There will be time for questions and answers. The lecture is part of a non-technical series about Fermilab science and culture. View previous lectures here.
