News question: Know your images?

Quiz time; another chance to shine!

Fermilab News at Work would like to congratulate Kimberly McDaniel for winning last week’s quiz! The answer was: model-independent searches allow physicists to take a wider view and search more generally for new particles or interactions.

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:

How did the Event Horizon Telescope capture the first image of a black hole? (Hint: See if it’s possible to see a black hole.)

Send your answer to news@fnal.gov by today, May 23, 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.
