On Tuesday, Fermilab celebrated the 60th anniversary of the discovery of the neutrino with cake in the Wilson Hall atrium. On June 14, 1956, Los Alamos scientists Clyde Cowan and Frederick Reines sent a telegram to Wolfgang Pauli confirming they had “definitely detected neutrinos.” Photo: Lauren Biron
