News question: Know your cosmological theory?

Quiz time; another chance to shine!

Fermilab News at Work would like to congratulate Adam Wixson for correctly answering last week’s quiz question! The answer was: The epsilon, which relates to the electric field inside a material, is bigger in glass than in air.

Thank you to everyone who participated!

A lab employee or user who submits the correct answer to the question by 12 p.m. today will be selected at random. The winner will be featured in next week’s quiz and receive a small token of recognition.

This week’s question is:

What shortcomings of the Big Bang theory does the theory of inflation address?  (Hint: See how the universe, as we know it, was born.)

Send your answer to by today, May 9, at 12 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.
