The Fermilab YouTube channel reached an exciting milestone: 500,000 subscribers.
Fermilab is the most followed lab within the national lab complex on YouTube. The channel features segments and interviews about general particle physics, Fermilab science and career spotlights, as well as public lectures. It’s popular for its science explainers, such as Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln’s videos, and trending well after its launch earlier this year, a new series, Even Bananas, starring Fermilab scientist Kirsty Duffy, who explores the fascinating world of neutrinos.
Since Fermilab joined YouTube in 2006 — a little under a year after the platform’s launch — viewers from more than 200 countries have watched our videos. A total of 43.4 million viewers have watched a combined 7 million hours.To celebrate, consider watching the channel’s:
