News question: Know your supernovae?

Editor’s note: We have a winner! Thanks 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 Dan Lambert for winning last week’s quiz! The answer was: Italy, France, India, and the UK. 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:

When supernova 87A exploded in 1987, how many neutrinos were detected around the world? (Hint: see how DUNE will be waiting on neutrinos)

Good luck! We will announce the winner and answer next week.
