Dear Colleagues, We would like to remind you to please register for the 51st Annual Users Meeting, which will take place on June 20-21The deadline for registering is next Tuesday, June 12, 2018. On June 20 we invite you to join the UEC and Director’s Lunch Panel starting at 1 p.m. in One West, Wilson Hall. On June 21, we will offer aScience Communication Training course from 9 to 10:30 for 30 persons on a first-come, first-served basis. If you would like to join this training, please register using…
From Live Science, June 4, 2018: The Higgs boson appeared again at the world’s largest atom smasher — this time, alongside a top quark and an antitop quark, the heaviest known fundamental particles.
From NOVA NEXT, June 4, 2018: The CMS and ATLAS collaborations report a substantial new advance in the understanding of the Higgs boson, the particle that is responsible for giving mass to fundamental subatomic particles.
From CNN, June 4, 2018: Scientists from the CMS and ATLAS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider have observed the most massive known fundamental subatomic particle directly interacting with an energy field that gives mass to the building blocks of the universe.
From Newsweek, June 4, 2018: After years of controversy and conflicting results, MiniBooNE appears to support old results from the LSND experiment. Researchers think it might be evidence of a fabled and highly controversial elementary particle, the sterile neutrino.
From Daily Mail, June 4, 2018: MiniBooNE, a Fermilab experiment, published new results that mirror those seen from an experiment run in the 1990s at Los Alamos National Laboratory, which could be interpreted as evidence for sterile neutrinos, a theorized source of the universe’s dark matter.
From Physicsworld, June 4, 2018: Physicists working on the Mini Booster Neutrino Experiment (MiniBooNE) at Fermilab in the US have released new results that they argue provide strong evidence for the existence of a new type of particle known as a sterile neutrino.
From Science News, June 1, 2018: The MiniBooNE experiment at Fermilab found more interactions of neutrinos and antineutrinos than expected, mirroring a puzzling excess found more than two decades ago.
Dear Colleagues, We would like to remind you to please register for the 51st Annual Users Meeting which will take place on June 20-21, 2018 at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The deadline for registering is June 12, 2018. The two-day meeting will highlight the leading-edge science, R&D, facilities and user life at Fermilab.

All Wilson Hall water fountains will be out of service Friday, May 11 for whole-system water treatment. Bottled water (5 gal jugs) will be available throughout Wilson Hall. Restrooms and the water dispenser at the ice machine in the Atrium are unaffected and will be available. After the treatment is concluded, the system will be opened up as soon as possible. Questions can be directed to John Kent, Wilson Hall Building Manager; firstname.lastname@example.org / x4753.
