News question: Know your searches?

Quiz time; another chance to shine!

Fermilab News at Work would like to acknowledge Adam Wixson for correctly answering last week’s quiz question! The answer was: The Big Bang theory could not explain why the universe was so flat and uniform and why its different parts began expanding simultaneously.

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 are the benefits to a model-independent search? (Hint: See why physicists are casting a wide net.)

Send your answer to news@fnal.gov by today, May 16, 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.
