Editor’s note: We have a winner! Thank you to all who participated. We will include the name of the winner and the answer to this week’s question, in next week’s trivia post.

Quiz time; another chance to shine!

Fermilab News at Work would like to congratulate Matthew Spaw and Adam Wixson for winning last week’s quiz! The answer was: final-state correlations. Thank you to everyone who participated.

Once again, the first lab employee or user to submit the correct answer to the question will be featured in next week’s quiz and will receive a small token of recognition.

This week’s question is:

In order to give scientists and instruments time to respond to transient events, how many alerts will LSST send out every night? Hint: See Symmetry.

Send your answer to by Tuesday, Feb. 26, at noon.

Good luck! We will announce the winner next week.
