Today, at 8 p.m., Fermilab Deputy Director Young-Kee Kim will give a lecture titled, “The New Frontier on the Great Plains: Fermilab and the Future of Particle Physics,” in Ramsey Auditorium.
Particle physics is entering a rich new age of discovery. Thanks to powerful new scientific tools, deep and long-standing questions about matter, energy, space and time are closer than ever to being answered. Just as physicists in the early 20th century penetrated within the atom and discovered the quantum theory, an epochal event that created new sciences and enabled technologies that shape the modern world, this search for answers is expected to reveal something profound. As the nation’s primary particle physics user facility, Fermilab plans to provide the scientific community with powerful tools for cutting-edge experiments that offer possible discoveries at the Energy, Intensity and Cosmic Frontiers.
