News question: Know your accelerators?

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 Julius Borchert and Jessica Esquivel for winning last week’s quiz! The answer was: around two dozen neutrinos. The number of neutrinos was estimated statistically, so the exact number versus background noise isn’t perfectly clear. We accepted both 24 and 25 neutrinos as correct.

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:

What are the names of the nine accelerators and storage rings that power technological advances and discoveries at Fermilab? (Hint: See how all the cylinders are firing.)

Send your answer to by today, April 4, at 1 p.m.

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


Past winners are welcome to participate in the quiz each week. However, only one win per person will be recognized in any 30 day period.
