From, June 28, 2022: This year marks the 10th anniversary of the announcement of the discovery of the Higgs Boson – the result of an unprecedented global collaboration. To mark occasion, the Interactions collaboration is publishing a new version of Quantum Diaries – with some original bloggers, and some newer physicists inspired by the historic discovery. Fermilab scientists are part of the mix.

CERN deepens its collaboration with the US-based neutrino experiment with the provision of two enormous stainless-steel vessels for DUNE’s cutting-edge liquid-argon detectors.
